    Hello everyone, Im new to the site and wanted to introduce myself. My name is Travis im 23 years old from Texas I graduate this year with my networking degree and I am already working in the field. My question is actually xp and 7 both but I think if we solve the xp I can get the 7 to cooperate. I have made a batch file with the contents net time \\jupiter /set /yes jupiter is the server I am wanting each computer to sync its clocks with. I set this .bat in the folder to run at startup. Only problem is it has to be a elevated command prompt. Is there some way I can fix this or another method I can use to get the clocks to sync? Thank you, Travis

    Hi Travis,
    I do not understand why you want to use a .bat file to do this. There are many excellent and free PC clock
    sychroniser-apps to download. Most can be set to run at start-up and hide in the system tray.
    Search on the net for eg PC Clock Synchronise Program

    Shouldn't be any problem running the BAT on XP. Just drop a shortcut to the file in the startup folder under the Administrator account.
    If needed on Win7, go into it's Properties and set it to run as Administrator.
