Have you checked the domain controller? That is where the global time is handled...

If you do not have access to the DC, you may want to speak with your Network Administrator to verify the correct time on the DC

To start the Windows Time service:

Click Start, point to All Programs, point to Accessories, and then click Command Prompt.

Type net start w32time, and then press ENTER.

Also less possible, the clock battery may need to be replaced.  It usually resets to a default time when this happens, but i don't know if it just makes the clock run slow if battery is very low.
