Thanks, Richard. Yes, I should have stated that I'm running WinXP Pro.
Thought of that _after_ I hit Send, of course!

You don't say what OS/platform this is for. I'll assume, like others, a
recent version of Windows.

I use an ancient (~2000) freeware shell extension called Date/Time Shell
Extension. It adds a Date/Time tab to the File Properties dialog. You
can set the created and modified date/time to the current, to each
other, to any date/time you specify, or to match some other file.
Theoretically, it's just for Win 95, 98, and NT, but it works fine in XP
for me. Unfortunately, the URL I have for it is 404, and Google doesn't
seem to turn it up.

As an alternative, I'd suggest trying Ninotech Date Edit
(http://home.worldonline.dk/ninotech/freeutil.htm). I don't use it
because I was happy with what I had (I prefer the integration into the
Properties dialog), but I use and recommend Ninotech's other free
utility, Path Copy, so I can vouch for their work in general. Path Copy
is incredibly handy, BTW.

For other options, here's a search result at FreewareWeb.com for "file
date change" -- there are several promising hits:

change

HTH!
