    I have a windows XP operating system. Whenever I reset the clock - it bounces back to the old time (three hours behind) I have tried to change the timezone setting from Pacific to Eastern but again it bounces back Any ideas

    Double click the clock on the task bar and then click Internet Time....see what the server is set to

    if it's time.nist.gov change it to time.windows.com or

    it it's time.windows.com to time.nist.gov click Apply and see

    What do you mean by "reset the clock". How do you do it and why?

    My clock in the lower left corner is always exactly three hours behind the actual time. I double click on the clock and reset it

    Change your mobo battery; about $4 at your local pharmacy.
