Internal Clock of the computer being modified

Hello experts,
Our customer has several software programs. For some reason our customer needs to change the day and time of the internal clock of the pc in order to enter information as they need to another software.
Problem is when this happens our application takes the date and time from the internal clock and gets the wrong information.
Some users have noticed this allowance of our customer and took advantage of it.
Now our customer says the users really need to be able to chance the date and hour at their will in order to get their other application working properly.
So What can we do in our application to get the real date and hour??
Can I take it from some other source not the internal clock of the PC??
We work with visual basic 2010, some examples would be perfect,
