First you have to make sure time service is not running
Then you can use task schedular to run cmd command to set time to whatever date time you wish.

Freeze? Do you want to disable the clock? On how many Clients?

I want to disable the clock. So that it always stays on the date of today. Even when restarting. The computers are not connected to the internet.

On one Client? On my knowledge you can't disable the clock, but you can hide it with local policies or GPO's. It will still run in the background. Windows or other OS needs the time and date for many things. Are you trying to bypass a trial version? Or what is your reason?

Ensure the computer is joined to the domain.  Create a local computer startup logon script which sets the date and time.

We have a program of a company that doesn't exist anymore. Yes, but there is no other choice. So we want to freeze the clock.

The BIOS is in fact a UEFI one, does that help?

It is a local company in Belgium, it is a consultant who left the company. Sorry, but I really need to freeze the clock.

Correction!  What I meant was ensure the computer is NOT joined to the domain.

As noted above, the clock will always run. It is embedded in software and the operating system cannot stop it.

Find different software. REALLY. NEVER in my entire computing life (more than 30 years) has the clock had to be disabled. NEVER ONCE.

I think you are in a black hole with no escape unless you change software.

OK. I understood. We will have to look for another solution. It is probably not possible.
