I'm out of suggestion. Did you check for infections?
The reason I ask their some infections will mess up your system time so you can't get Windows Updates etc.

We need to make sure the correct time zone is set in the Registry and not just windows time settings.


Open Regedit (click start and type regedit in the search box)

browse to:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Control\TimeZoneInformation

What is the TimeZoneKeyName set to?

Example:
-time.png


OR:

We can find out via commnad prompt.
click on start, and type cmd in the search box.
This will open a command prompt,
Type: tzutil /g

Then press enter,
It should now state what your time zone is set to in the registry.
Is it correct?. If not, let me know what your Time Zone should be, and I will create a command for you to add it to the registry via command prompt.

It is set to mountain time which is correct though I am on Arizona time which currently is on mountain time though of course we do not have daylight savings time in AZ.

I use malwarebits regularly and have had infections in the past but nothing as of recent. This is a very odd one I agree. Two MB, new CMOS battery, reset of bios, etc, etc.

Try using DST just to see what happens. Your not matching your computer to local time but to Microsoft time. Just a thought.

Another Just a Thought. Is there any over-clocking of CPU or memory going on ?

No overclocking. Just normal processing.

Just noticed an issue I may have created by mistake. When I try to update time.windows it tells me I don't have privilege in my admin account. When I go to services the windows time service is no where to be found. Somehow it was removed when I was last in there checking to ensure it was in automatic. How do I get it back?
