Here's an odd one. I have client whose computer clock jumps forward exaclty 24hrs at random intervals. Obviously this results in strange results such as emails sent in Outlook appear to have been sent one day in the future. I'm considering changing the CMOS battery  but my gut feeling is that it's not resolve the issue. The computer has up to date AV installed and doesn't flag up any threats. Any suggestions?

Dear,

I suggest you like you have say to change the CMOS battery, or maybe you could check the voltage of the battery.

Best Regards

Thanks,
I did indeed turn out to be the CMOS battery. I'd never seen this characteristic before hence why I suspected it to be something else. I've award points to both as they are both relevent answers. Thanks again
