I have a hunch the Microsoft fix in my first link may be wrong. Try it anyway, but if it doesn't work, try using regedit to navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\W32Time and make sure the ImagePath subkey reads "C:\Windows\system32\svchost.exe -k LocalService" without the quotes.

Win7 Ultimate x32 and Win7 Home Premium 64bit.

Fixed it by a system restore to yesterday morning:). Now the service is running and the sheduled task actually updates the clock. Shame I didn't find out exactly what was causing the problem (probably me tinkering) but at least I have rescued the situation. I guess I'll now have to redo the Windows updates that came sailing in earlier today and still waiting for my dinner .
Thanks for you help chaps and chapesses:) I'll know where to come mext time I have a prob.

Following on from my previous posts, I re-installed W7 on mt desktop (Shiny new SSD) and had the same lack of time sync problems. I tried the new scheduled service from here, which again did not work when I ran it. Further investigations found that the time service was not running. You can check this out by typing 'services.msc' into the start box, right click it in the results field and 'run as administrator'. Scroll down to Windows Time'. it should be 'Started'. it seems that sometimes this service does not start when required. So to make it start (dont ask me why it works), double click the Windows Time service entry and on the General tab, set the Startup type to Automatic (Delayed Start).
Offset your clock then restart the PC. Give the service a couple of mins or so to start, then manually run the new schedule created above. The clock should sync, and the sched service will run as often as you have set it to and keep your clock in sync, :=)
