My cumputer clock loses time while it's on. After about 5 hours it has lost about 35 minutes .
When you switch it off and on again, the time is right again.
I have got a Pentium 4 and Windows 98 .
What can I do? Thank you for your help.

There is usually no easy solution for this problem since your CMOS on the motherboard appears to be OK. The problem then is software related to a program or a function. The only way to find out what is causing it is through the process of elimination.
Have a look at This Website since it details the common causes and also provides a link to the Microsoft article pertaining to this matter.

Good luck in your search and let us know what you have found.

I had a similar symptom with my W98SE. FOund it to be my old version of Norton AV, NAV 5.0. I had downloaded a new reference file last fall and since then my clock would progressively slow down. Symantec support site has a "fix" for it which I used for a while, a fix for symevent.exe. However, while it fixed the clock, it didn't prevent the problem. I finally un-installed NAV5.0 and moved up to Norton 2004 and the problem is GONE!
