    Hi
    I went to get on my computer today and the clock was two hours and 17 minutes fast. I tried synchronizing it through the tab in the clock itself and also in the control panel and it did no good, it just synchronized back to the wrong time again. I know the time zone is not off because of the extra minutes added to the incorrect time. I tried restarting the computer but it is still wrong. I'm on DSL so I'm constantly connected to the internet. My OS is WIndows XP and I'm using IE7.
    Thanks
    Neva

    Try right clicking on the clock and choosing adjust time and date.. click the time zone tab and make sure is lists the correct time zone.. then click the internet time tab and use the down arrow and select the time.nist.gov option instead of Windows Time.. Sometimes it can take up to a minute to synchronize. If it doesn't stay set here is a free utility that you can download that you can customise to do so.

    So you double clicked on the clock and went to Internet Zone and check it was Automatically synchronised with the Internet server and is it the correct server?

    Looks like it's holding, time will tell. Thanks! I did download the utility but though it thanks me for downloading it, I can't find it on my computer.
