Hi,

I think that you would need to provide some more information about this issue.

Could you please post some information about whether you are running a server and if so, what OS is it running on?

If it is a windows server, have you checked to see if the time on the computer/workstation matches the time on the server?

Also, when you say log on, are you referring to log on at Windows XP boot time?

try changing the regional setting to the settings of the server.
remember that both the settings must be same and the timing should be same as AM or PM.

Hope this will work for you.

if you are logging onto a domain,

first authenticate as an admin on the local machine (not on the domain)

then run

w32tm /resync

If the issue persists after a reboot,

w32tm /config /syncfromflags:manual /manualpeerlist:PDC

replace PDC with the IP of your domain controller

If you are not authenticating againts a domain, replace PDC with tick.usno.navy.mil

also: ensure your time zone setting on the computer is correct.. it can whack things out as well.

1.  log on locally
2.  go to a command prompt and type: "net time /domain:<domain name> /set"  where <domain name> = name of your domain
3.  Log out
4.  Log back into the domain

I tried to run net time /domain:<domain name> /set   logged on local administrator but recieved error code 5 access denied. I can reach the domain by going to run   \\domaincontroller   but can not add domain administrator user on the xp machine from control panel users. WHY?  Maybe ministry92 manual process will work

I tried syncing bothe the domain controller and the client separately but still no luck. I think they might be a security issue on the domain controllers active directory
