I am seeing the following warning in my system event viewer. How can I fix it? It came up once a day for the past 5 days and a couple of times before that, skipping a day or two.


++++++++++++++++++
Event Type: Warning
Event Source: W32Time
Event Category: None
Event ID: 36
Date: 6/25/2005
Time: 2:12:46 PM
User: N/A
Computer: HOMEPC
Description:
The time service has not been able to synchronize the system time for 49152 seconds because none of the time providers has been able to provide a usable time stamp. The system clock is unsynchronized.

For more information, see Help and Support Center at http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/events.asp.

Also, when I launch my task manager I am not seeing the tabs for the list of tasks/services and the tab for the system usage. (see attached screen shot)

I would also like to fix this. Is it related? I discovered both at the same time. If not, I will repost the second problem separately.

I'm running WinXP Pro, SP2.

For Task manager, you have it running in "tiny footprint mode"

Simply double click in a clear area of the frame and it will revert to normal.

What happens if you try to manually update the clock time (Internet Time) when double clicking the time displayed in the task bar?

Thanks for the help with task manager...

As far as the clock, the time in the task bar is accurate and I was able to change it.
