Do what TEWS suggests.
You might also want to check the time in your BIOS to make sure it is displaying correctly. If your computer is over a couple of years old, consider replacing the Motherboard Battery with a fresh one.

Try changing the time server from time.windows.com to time-b.nist.gov.

Thanks

I know this has been posted about before, but I'm confused again. After British Summer Time kicked in on Sunday, Windows say it went forward 1 hour, but it didn't. If I sync the time, it is OK, but when I booted into OS X (dual-boot setup) it sets the time correctly, then going back into W7, the...

incorrect time set
Windows 7 always boots with the time at utc (0) even though I have set the correct region (+10). When I update from the internet "time.nist.gov" the time is displayed correctly but it is tedious to have to do this at every boot. The local time shows correctly in the bios and in dualboot Linux....
