Step back in time

Sometimes when expensive software expires it's annual licence and the new licence key is lost in the post.. sometimes, just sometimes the old hack of turning back your system clock does the trick of fooling the licenced software. Unfortunately if you're on a domain time date updates are handled not by the user. Sure you can change the time but after a while the pc will correct the error. So what you need is a batch file that will change the date & time and schedule task that to run every ten minutes or so.

Contents of batch file
Echo Time_Format | Time
Echo Date_Format | Date

eg; Echo 00:00:00 | Time
Echo 01/01/70 | Date
