Hi rguillermo,

If your users can change the system time i suspect they belongs to the local "Administrators" group and you should remove  them those high priviledges.

In Windows XP, you just make them normal user accounts. Restricted as hell, but they can't change the time. ;-)
Hi rguillermo,

are you in a domain environment, if yes then the policy mentioned above should be used in a domain policy not local policy
