You an use w32tmw32tm /resync /rediscoverand a really great article on how the time process works is by Matt (tigermatt on this site)  http://tigermatt.wordpress.com/2009/08/01/windows-time-for-active-directory/ThanksMike

You could set up a logon script which calls the following:
net  time  /domain:MyDomain  /set  /yes
You should also check the mainboard's CMOS battery, it may need to be replaced.

I would check if there is a problem with the DC servers or NTP server not updating correctly.
