Problem with internet explorer connecting to servers

We have a couple of sites that we just can't seem to connect to with internet explorer. I finally think I figured out why and it is strange. We had a local server we couldn't connect to, we would login and it would flash and bring us right back to the login screen. We moved the system clock ahead an hour on the computer(not the server) and connected fine. We went back and made sure we put the timezone update on all computers and everything was fine. Now we are having this same problem connecting to another site. The dropdown menus use javascript and they wouldn't work. Entered the website into the internet explorer exceptions box and it worked. Just didn't seem right though. For the heck of it I removed the site from the exceptions and moved the computer clock ahead an hour and tried it again and it worked fine. Anyone have any ideas?

Sorry it is so long, just wanted to make sure i covered it all
