Unable to get replacements for desktop clock to show

I am unable to get ANY third party clock to show in replacement for MS clock. I have tried 5 or 6 and everything runs, (shows up in Task Manager processes), but not in the lower right hand position of the task bar.

Any Help?

Are you trying to change the timedate.cpl , or use a clock replacement of some sort? Most 3rd party clock replacements work only on x86 versions. I found this which is listed as "now for Windows 7 x86 and x64".

A Guy - Thanks for your reply. I don't think that I'll be spending $30 for ANY replacement for the standard clock.

Thanks again.
