Microsoft Windows 7 Ultimate
6.1.7601 Service Pack 1 Build 7601

And I am in the area you gave me:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\W32Time\Parameters

I did look at your image.

In the 1st image you posted in post #9 you have the "win32time" highlighted.
In my image I have the "win32time" expanded and I have highlighted "parameters"
I am one step ahead of you. Do you have the ability to expand "win32time" ?
That is why I asked what version you are running which is the same as mine.

I can not see in your second image what is highlighted as your image does not show low enough.
I would guess and suggest it is still highlighted "win32time".

The second image I shared is the same as the first just with the tree view on the left scrolled up to show that I have the right area. I can see why you'd think I'm in the wrong one given how radically different my entry is.

Mine lacks sub-folders entirely and the root entries are different.

If you click the picture I originally gave, the full sized image, and you'll see there is no little arrow on the left.

Clearly this is the root of my problem heh. I'm curious how this happened but more interested in fixing it. It's almost like they changed the entire approach to the entry during an update or something at some point and I didn't get it or it didn't apply fully.

Edit: As you can see, expand is greyed out.

Yes I see we are both on the same page now.
I can only now suggest to keep looking for your answer or perform a windows repair.
Do you have a Win Ultimate disk ?

Hmm. Thank for helping me narrow down the issue. I almost want to make a new thread because this is just weird.

I've got a restore point made, what would happen if you exported your w32time entry and I deleted mine and imported yours?

If we have the same version and yours works it seems like that should solve my problem.

And yeah I've got the disc around somewhere, but it would require a lengthy search I bet finding it XD

Ok, I am now on a new page.
I think that the reason you do not have the expansion on win32time is because it has been unregistered.
If it is registered the required configuration is loaded.

I am here.

Without me reading through what you have already said, were you able to register with command W32tm /register

Sorry to jump around please try
W32time /register if no success.
or
w32tm.exe /register
or
w32time.exe /register

That makes sense, but that takes us back to an earlier phase of this repair attempt:

Quote:
w32tm.exe /register

The following error occurred: The instance name passed was not recognized as valid by a WMI data provider. (0x80071069)
The other two just said not recognized.

Ok, I have the win32time zipped and waiting to be sent if that is the path you want to try next.
Just PM me with an email address and I'll send it.

I just found this on another post.

command window and run "net stop w32time" followed by "w32tm /unregister", "w32tm /register" and "net start w32time" and then
"w32tm /resync".
