My time zone is correct..and even if it was incorrect it wouldn't explain why the hours won't change, but thank you for trying to help.

I was really excited because I thought that fixed it...but it didn't.

It seemed to have fixed the minutes on the clock...as that hasn't gone out of sync again for the past two hours; however, the hours only changed for the first hour then became constant again.

Scan with Malwarebytes Anti-Malware free if you haven't already - enable rootkit scanning too (Settings - Detection)

Tried setting the options that gave you errors before? Also try restoring Windows Time service defaults - link should be in previous page

I restored the windows time service defaults already, but if you think I should restore them a second time I will. The malware scan is running now and hasn't found anything yet (it's running through files now and is almost done but I have to leave for the night).

I will be gone for the next few days, so I'm sorry if I don't reply and thank you for your assistance.

It is alright, we are not going anywhere.

Try those steps again since the last fixit seems to have fixed some.

Please also run cmd as admin:
Code:
Sfc /scannow

If this is a desktop computer, then the battery is probably only used when there is no power being supplied to the power supply unit. Even if the computer is "off", there is still power on the motherboard. If this is a laptop, then things might be different.

It would help us to help you if you would fill out your system specs via these steps:
System Info - See Your System Specs


Maybe your real time clock circuits are bad. If we knew the system specs, we might be able to tell you how to test for that.

Alright I've redone the previous fix-it and the clock has been re-synced, but the minutes have already fallen behind again within 5-10 minutes.

I ran the Sfc /scannow and it said it found corrupt files that it could not fix. It told me to check the log but I'm not sure what I'm looking at here. I've attached the log though.

I've updated my profile with my computer's stats.

I did not look thru every line of that CBS log file, nut I did see entries related to KB3068708. That KB will cause SFC errors which can be ignored.

If you want, you can...
...restart the computer (if you have not done so since the last SFC)
...uninstall KB3068708
...restart the computer again
...run SFC/SCANNOW again.

If SFC is all clear, then let Windows Update install KB3068708.

Yeah, sfc result is clean. I believe I have exhausted all the possible fixes I can think of.

Perhaps it is time you should consider a Repair Install - Repair Install.
In short: Windows Update/device drivers will be reset and need to be re-installed. Programs and data will be untouched.
