<html>
  <head>
    <title>count down.</title>
  <script>
    var today  = new Date();
    var twoHrs = new Date(today.getTime() + 7200000);

    function showHumanDifference()
    {
      var now  = new Date()
      var diff = twoHrs.getTime() - now.getTime();

      if (diff < 0)
      {
        timeOut();
      }

      var hours   = Math.floor(diff / 3600000) ;
      diff       -= (hours * 3600000); // take away hours in milliseconds

      var minutes = Math.floor(diff / 60000);
      diff       -= minutes * 60000; // take away minutes equivalent in milliseconds

      var seconds = Math.floor(diff / 1000) // - (hours * 360000) - (minutes * 60) * 1000 ;

     //document.write(hours + ":" + Math.floor(minutes) + ":" + seconds + " until sessions times out");
document.getElementById("Text1").value = hours + ":" + Math.floor(minutes) + ":" + seconds 
      setTimeout("showHumanDifference()", 100)
    }

    function timeOut()
    {
      if (confirm("Session time out. Do you want to logg back in?"))
      {
        location.href = "home.html"
      }
      else
      {

Check if this Idea works out for your requirement. Hope it helps you.
<form name="counter">
<input type="text" size="8" name="starttime">
<input type="text" size="8" name="d2">
<input type="button" size="8" name="Start" value="Start" onclick="javascript:display()" >
</form> 

<script> 
<!-- 
// 

 var milisec=0 
 var seconds=  document.counter.starttime.value; 
 document.counter.d2.value= document.counter.d1.value;

function display()
{ 
clearTimeout();
document.counter.reset();
 if (milisec<=0)
 { 
    milisec=9 
    seconds-=1 
 } 
 if (seconds<=-1){ 
    milisec=0 
    seconds+=1 
 } 
 else 
    milisec-=1 
    document.counter.d2.value=seconds+"."+milisec 
    setTimeout("display()",100) 
	
} 
--> 
</script>
