Howdy all..just a small problem im experiencing with the clock on my computer.
 It seems to be losing time quite frequently, i set it and apply the changes regularly
but not even an hour later it is behind by at least an hour or two..curious. I have
Norton Anti-Virus installed and have run a virus scan thinking it may be virus related
but found nothing. If anyone has any ideas or has experienced the same type of
problem your feedback would be much appreciated..Thanks!!

Time to change the battery on the motherboard.
This is usually the first symptom of a weak battery.  Soon, the system info held by the CMOS memory will be lost.

  When you say your clock is "losing time quite frequently," my first thought is "CMOS battery." But then you say, "i set it and apply the changes regularly but not even an hour later it is behind by at least an hour or two..." which sounds like it's running backwards!

  If so, I just want to mention... programs that use the clock, most notably games (e.g., Lemmings,) can change your system time. But you should definitely check your battery soon.
