Unexpected change of system time in Windows 2003 server

Hi ,

I am very worried for automatic changes of system date and hour in a Windows 2003 Server Sp2.

Currently it happens every hour (more less ).
I have changed Local policy for the user and created a new user that is the only one that can change the system date, but the problem still happens.

Could it be a virus?

Regards

How many DCs you have ?

Well,
There is no PDC.  It's a LAN connected to Internet with two W2003 servers defined as workgroup servers and about 20 Pc's and printers basically.

The other server (Database server) has a right system date.
The server  that changes the system date is a web server.
It seems that every hour the date-time is changed automatically and delayed about one hour.

He's not using Active directory. It means he doesn't have any DC
This is the best money I have ever spent. I cannot not tell you how many times these folks have saved my bacon. I learn so much from the contributors.

Sounds like spyware on the pc's. I'd scan all Pc's and servers for malware.

Thanks

Hi Enrique,
 glad to be of help.

I don't understand how the TG-TIS's post could be a solution, since you don't have any DC.
Perhaps is related to the part in which he asks you to AV scan all boxes.

Anyway i am happy you found the solution you was searching for.
