It will take more than a single software program to fix the entire problem

However, most newer machines (built after 1996 or so) should be fin until
like 2038 or farther. Macs (ughhh...) have had this fixed for a LONG time.
If your computer is older than that, look ot the website for the BIOS
manufacturer and get the latest upgrade for the BIOS, that should fix a
lot of the problem. Other than that, check the sites for all the different
software you hove to check their Y2K status. Get any upgrades they have
that fix the problem. You probably use Windows. Windows has "minor issues"
with dates after 1999, like sorting files by date comes out wrong, ect. A
lot of older programs are going to have problems, you'll need to upgrade
them. (Windows 98 doesn't fix any of the date problems with Windows 95!)
