Win7 64 Cannot start Windows Time service

I type:

Code:
w32tm /register
I get:

Code:
The following error occurred: The instance name passed was not recognized as val
id by a WMI data provider. (0x80071069)
I ran WMI diagnostic and I get:

Code:

Can't edit my time server, I get:

I am my administrator XD

I'm just trying to get my clock to sync.

Thanks for your time. (Pun unavoidable XD)

Type each one of the command below and press enter.
net stop w32time
w32tm /unregister
w32tm /register
net start w32time
w32tm /resync
Reboot and monitor time.
This stops the Time Clock Service, restarts and resync's it, hopefully this will solve the issue.

OR

When I had similar problems I tried this but it did not work! However, even though I am not an expert and when none of the solutions offered on the net seemed to work.
By logic I used a combination from different solutions and it worked for me.
Could this be a problem for ones when solution above did not work?
At the elevated command prompt (with administrator privileges), type the following command
1. Type "w32tm /debug /disable" and press 'Enter' (net stop w32time gave an Error 5 Access denied response!)
2. Type "w32tm /unregister" and press 'Enter' (without using the first command the second did not work!) you should get the response " W32Time successfully unregistered"
3. Type "w32tm /register" and press 'Enter' you should get the response "W32Time successfully registered"
4. Type "net start w32time" and press 'Enter' you should get the response "The windows Time Service is starting. The windows time service was started successfully"

Firstly, thank you for your attempt to help me, it is appreciated, merry xmas

Secondly, at step 3 I get:

Code:
w32tm /register

The following error occurred: The instance name passed was not recognized as val
id by a WMI data provider. (0x80071069)
Also:

Code:
net start w32time
The Windows Time service is starting.
The Windows Time service could not be started.

A system error has occurred.

System error 2 has occurred.

The system cannot find the file specified.

Could be an incorrect registry entry.

Maybe searching for w32time in System via regedit will reveal something.

Can you recommend a registry repair tool? I ask because I have no idea what I'm looking for.

I will see what I can find.

Meanwhile have you run SFC ?

You will find no one to recommend a Reg repair tool here.
They are dangerous and not needed.
Ccleaner as a Reg cleaner is about ad far as you will get.

First lets copy the Registry for just in case we stuff it.
You can create a restore point or my preferred way.
Click on the Windows start Orb and type regedit.
Regedit.exe will appear up on the top.
Right click on it and select Run as Administrator.
Select File select Export and save the Reg to a place of your likening.
Here is the path to the win32time.

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\W32Time\Parameters

You expand the tree by selecting the triangles down the left hand side.
When you get to Parameters it is what appears in the right hand pane you are interested in.

Here is mine.

You can Import your saved Registry the same way you Exported if you need to after you make any changes.

Ran sfc, no errors.

Then I guess if it's a registry error I'll never know.

I have now cloned those settings. Let's hope it helps.

I still get the same errors on trying to start the service or register or launch the options panel under the internet time tab.

Thanks again and merry xmas all

My registry entry here looks radically different: (See attached screenshot.)

You are not in the right area.
W32time should expand down and you click on to highlight "Parameters"
Look at my image I attached.

What version of Windows are you running?
