Setting time in Windows 98

I am trying to do windows update on a 98 system and when I do, Microsoft's website says my time is out of sync.  There is no time in the lower right hand corner of the taskbar - how do I set the time to sync with a server?

Do it manually by going into

Start
Settings
Control Panel
Date/Time

I don't think that Win98 has the time synchronisation from a standard source feature, but if you connect it to say, a Netware network, when you login to the network the time is synchronised from the server.

It is, because I have a Windows 98 pc which I've checked it with, before posting my Comment.

Are you running TweakUI?

Check Control Panel for the icon.

You can turn off Control Panel icons/entries with TweakUI.

You could always go into DOS and change the time and date there, or do it from the BIOS on booting the pc.

In DOS, as you are no doubt already aware type:-

date
time

to amend them.  You could put these commands into a BAT file in lieu of doing it through the control panel.

You can do it on the command line (Start -> Run -> command) using the commands "date" and (I don't know if this exists on Win98, "time").

You'll need an application to sync your time with a time server somewhere.

Here's a list of some available.
