    Wierd happenings
    My macbook pro has started playing up toda.

    I came to it this morning after forgetting to leave on charge to find my battery had gone flat, upon reconnecting to power i switched it on and my clock has been reset to 1/1/2004 and i had to type my password to get onto my wifi?

    also getting about 4-5 application requests asking if they can use my incoming network connections?

    i accepted all requests and reset my clock settings then i let battery run down again, upon restarting it did exactly the same thing again!!!!

    Have i got a virus?

    No virus. Sounds like something went wrong with the battery or even internal battery because your clock reset. Try reverting to a backup made or re-install your OS.

    No. In fact I believe it should do that when you run the battery down to 0. I know my iBook did it when I accident ran it completely out. The battery keeps settings such as date and time, and networks. Expect that to happen whenever you run your battery out. Not a big deal.

    P.S. "Virus" does not mean "Computer problem that I don't understand" especially on a Mac.

    Back to my old 2.2GHz C2D MB after selling my MBP and wondering what my next Mac will be :)
    Ahh ahhh, it shouldn't happen when the battery goes completely flat.
    I'm guessing that this MBP is quite old, and that it could be the internal battery.

    I would simply try resetting the SMC.
