Are any other settings not being retained?

I'm guessing that your CMOS battery needs to be replaced.

Maybe check in Services under Windows Time, that the service isn't stopped or disabled. You can also see if changing to another time server for the time to synch to would help.

Right click on the time, Adjust date/time -Internet time/change settings

If none of that works, suggest you check your cmos battery, like bobkn said. It's the little coin shaped battery on your motherboard, to see if it needs replacing. They are pretty cheap to get.
