    I have an older Gateway desktop running Win 98. Both the desktop clock and the BIOS clock continuously reset themselves to exactly 1 hour ahead. No matter what I do it always resets itself to 1 hour ahead, no more, no less. Any ideas? It almost sounds like a daylight savings thing, but the timezone etc is set correctly. Thanks for the help.

    Change the battery on the motherboard.

    Would that cause it to reset repeatedly to just 1 hour? I thought if it was the battery it would progressively get worse?

    Do you have any other time sync utilities installed? If so make sure that there time zones are set right - or uninstall them.
