I was going to post this thread last night but tried the Update Now button on Internet Time Settings and the information appeared in Date and Time-> Internet Time, (Like it used to in XP), so decided not to post. I have just realised though that if you restart the computer later on, this information disappears. Is there any way to keep this information from disappearing? The only reason I ask is with XP, sometimes it would fail to synchronise, but at least it would inform me so I could try another Internet Time server or manual update. Does Windows 7 inform you if it fails to automatically synchronize? Thanks.
One way around your problem is to do a Direct Sync. with a more reliable Time Server than the ones Windows uses.
The US Atomic Clock IP Address is 18.104.22.168 ,Type this Address in your Internet Time Servers Slot and press the update now button. Windows will keep this address as its default sync. address until you change it. The sync. is always flawless.
Now the default Update Interval for Time Synchronization in Windows is 7 Days.
You can change how frequent Windows Synchronize with the internet time servers with a simple reg. entry.
The amount 604800 is the amount of Seconds in 7 days,
You can change the amount to reflect how often your Computer Synchronizes.
Reboot after making the changes.
Another way is to run Task Scheduler to open Date an Time, when Windows Synchronizes Time.
I hope this will be helpful.
