Go to Control Panel> Desktop Gagets> Add clock.

If you closed the clock at some point, a reboot may bring it back.

Press Windows key + R key.
In the run box type sfc /scannow
Note one space after sfc. Hit Enter key to run.
This will check your system files which is a good thing to try for a start.

When you say your desktop clock do you mean then one that appears if you click the taskbar icon (bottom right) or do you mean one of your desktop gadgets?

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Ah, I assumed the other one. A virus can cause this gadget issue.
