sounds like a problem your motherboard rather than Windows. The clock is read from the internal clock that runs from CMOS. Maybe your battery has gone? Try entering your BIOS and check the clock before shutting down for 10 minutes and then checking again in the BIOS. If the clock hasnt kept up with the time, you may need to change your CMOS battery, or perhaps the motherboard may be faulty.
