For just resizing, I use Windows Photo Gallery. It's really not a problem, now that I know about it; just thought I'd let others know in case they run into the same thing.

The resized image done without the date/time update is also no readable in FastStone nor Elements 11.

Well, the date/time issue has nothing to do with not being able to resize photos in Windows Photo Gallery. Battery has not been removed, I tried to resize, & on the resized file, I get a message that the file cannot be opened because it's empty! I can't figure out what is happening, as I was able to resize a couple with no problem, no again it cannot be done in Windows; where I've always resized my photos.

By "resize" do you mean scaling - changing width and height as measured in pixels?

Yes, in order to make the photo smaller for uploading to sites.

Strange thing is that I was able to resize after updating the date info; now again, cannot do it.

This may be an issue with the Windows tool when encountering something it wasn't programmed to handle. It might be worthwhile for you to download some other free tool (I use gimp for that purpose).

It only happens with the Q. I've used this tool for downsizing Panasonic, and 3 other Pentax's, with absolutely no problems. I can live with it, just thought someone might know how to solve this between the Q and my Windows tool.

I have Elements and FastStone, but I prefer to use the Windows tool for downsizing images, as it saves my images to my Windows folder, very convenient for me.
