In Windows 7 I can set a "per program" sound setting. It's cool, because I can mute the browser (by example) and listen music without a lot of "noise" from another open windows.

Now, I need a "per program" setting for date time. I need test some softwares in different timespans (some years ago; some years later, etc). But when I change the global date from Windows, I cannot browse the web because of certificate problems...

Someone knows some method to "per program" changing the date time?

To my knowledge there is no software or wrapper you can use to accomplish this. Your best bet to do this would be to use a virtual machine and turn on time synchronization. VirtualBox is a free virtualization program, but keep in mind you may need extra windows licenses.

Also, depending on your windows license for Windows 7 you may be able to use the Windows Virtual PC and virtualize Windows 7 (I can't find it right now, but I think Ultimate/Enterprise allows you to virtualize it at least once.)
