# MATLAB: Cannot convert dates prior to Jan 1, 1970

convert datesMATLAB

I have been getting this error, not specifically related to any function, but every time I save a file and try to run it. I even created a file with just a comment in it, saved and tried to reopen the file and got this error.
Caught "std::exception" Exception message is: Cannot convert dates prior to Jan 1, 1970
I don't understand what I am doing wrong as I have used Matlab on several other computers with no problems, any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks, Jeff
