Windows 7: Windows Time

Windows Time

About 3 times within the last couple of weeks, windows time jumps back exactly one hour. I reset it and it goes several days before jumping back again. The time zone remains where I set it. It is set to syncronize with time.windows.com.

The fact that the time change is precise doesn't make it appear that my CMOS battery is a problem, and SpeedFan shows it having sufficient voltage. Is the windows time server screwball or what?

I've always used the time-b.nist.gov time servers here without issue. Have it set my 3 PC's and my Linksys Router (running DD-WRT).

I just reset it to the server that you are using, but it doesn't make an immediate difference. Is there a way to force it to syncronize now, or do I just have to reset it myself and wait to see what happens? It is set to show notifications of any time changes, but I have never seen any such notice.

Hmm, it just reset itself, so now to wait (still no notification).
