That error will come up if the machine that you're remoting from has a time difference greater than 5 minutes as compared with the one you're logging into, generally a server.

To open Date and Time, click Start, click Control Panel, and then double-click Date and Time.

An Internet time server updates the date set by your computer as well as the time.

The Update Now button is not available unless the Automatically synchronize with an Internet time server check box is selected.

You can change the time on your computer clock manually on the Date & Time tab in Date and Time in Control Panel. You can also open Date and Time by double-clicking the clock on the taskbar.

Because the time service that MS shows us has a couple or so of time servers to get to doesn't always update, I actually have downloaded the following free software to get the time on demand and had it install their icon on my desktop so I can get it anytime I please:

WebTime 2000 (MS Windows 95/98, ME, XP, Vista, 2000 or Windows NT)
