Hi Rajesh,

You might consider reinstalling the OS on this computer - as it would most likely be the simplest fix.

Otherwise, I recommend you create a system restore point before attempting the following steps.

To locate future-dated files:
    Open 'File Explorer' (shortcut: WindowsKey + E).
    Click on the 'View' menu option.
    Click on 'Options'.
    Select the 'View' tab.
    Check 'Show Hidden Files, Folders and Drives'. 
    Uncheck 'Hide Protected Operating System Files'. 
    Apply and close the options.
    Click on 'This PC' in the left-hand pane. 
    Click in the 'Search' field at the top of the Windows Explorer window. 
    Type "modified:" followed by today's date, two dots, and a date several years into the future. E.g., "modified:12/14/2022 .. 12/31/2099" 
    The search will return a list of files with creation dates of today or newer.  

Ignoring all files with today's date, use Windows PowerShell to change the date for any future dated files.

    On the 'Windows Taskbar', click on the 'Start' button (shortcut:  Windows logo key or Ctrl + Esc).
    Windows Start, locate the 'Windows PowerShell' shortut.
    Right-click on' Windows PowerShell' and select 'Run as Administrator'.

    Change the creation time for each of the future-dated files you identified in the prior search.  
       (Get-Item "D:\Temp\somefilename.txt").CreationTime=("13 December 2022 12:00:00")
