You clock is running too slow? About 1 minute a day... or even more?
Power off system completely and detach cable form power socket. Detach network cable as well (so it cannot synchronzie time from internet). After 10 minutes attach power up again and boot (leave network cable detached). What is the date/time then, a time in the past for example 1970 or 2005? Or just a few minutes off track? You can attach network cable again afterwards

I dont know if it slow or what... It just goes out of time tremendously, it goes forward in time and backwards...

Should I still try that?

Thanks

One more question: Is the time exactly 1,2,3 hours out of sync? Or even days/years? So is it simply a timezone problem?

A custom built desktop machine? Did you swap the CMOS battery already?

So a totally random time difference... even forward in time. Not an internet time server update problem.... that synchronize runs only once a week, so I don't expect a faulty timeserver (and you reset the time by synchroizing with a timeserver anyway to correct the issue).

No program in Windows 7 resets the clock... unless done manually. Allmost sure it's a BIOS/CMOS issue. Replace CMOS battery

Replace cmos battery most likely solves the problem. Battery costs about 30 dollarcents, most of time it's a CR2032
