Windows 7 clock is always five minutes fast
Posted on 2012-04-12
About a week ago I noticed my W7 Ultimate x64 system time was five minutes fast. I went into the clock and manually triggered a time server update, which corrected the time. A couple of days later it's back to five minutes fast. I changed the time server from windows to the .gov option. One of my problems is I can no longer go in to check the settings or to change them. I get "Unable to continue. You do not have permission." Yet I'm using the same account.
There's no domain. Following the suggestion of another article I went to change the update schedule from weekly to daily, yet the key did not exist in CurrentControlSet, but was in ControlSet002. I'm now wondering if my profile has glitched and I'm not really the user I think I am.
I have an XP unit on my LAN and it is running five minutes fast as well. The manual sync there just set the time correct, but it will be fast again soon.
Has anyone seen this?
