Laptops and desktops on new Windows 2012 domain are showing times 3 ours into the future.

The times on the server clocks are correct.

I tried "net stop w32time" but all I get is "the service name is invalid".

I am running the command from an elevated command prompt.

They are all set to the same time zone.

I tried running the both the 50394 and 50395 fixits on the Win 7 machine and the Server 2012 machine and it told me both times that that fixit was not for my OS.

Have you tried setting the time on the servers through the system BIOS?

I would also check the router for the system time.

On some Windows 7 (SP1) computers, Windows Update becomes super slow even the computer is reasonably fast.  There's one solution that seemed to have worked well for me (after trying a few other suggested solutions).
