When I checked the date it was correct.

I have repaired permissons thinking this was a problem, I also downloaded and ran System Optimizer X. Is there anything else I can do? The only recent changes that I have made to the PB is that I installed iLife '06 and added a 1GB stick of Kingston RAM, both of the 1GB sticks in my PB are Kingston.
time/Date issues are often symptoms of PRAM or PRAM battery problems. Maybe reset the PRAM and see if that fixes things. I have to say though that PRAM doesn't usually affect the USB ports.
