Windows 7: My clock keeps going back to eastern time

My clock keeps going back to eastern time

Hello all,

A few months ago I did a fresh install of Windows 7, I went from 32 bit to 64 bit. Since then every once in a while I notice that my clock is 2 hours off, I am in central time and when it loses time it loses 2 hours.

I would normally think if I am losing time it is my CMOS battery but it's not like I am losing time, like 23 minutes or an hour and 5 minutes, it is always 2 hours exactly when it happens.

Has anyone had this happen and do you think it is my CMOS battery ??

The first thing I would do is swap the CMOS battery as that is what it sounds like. If that doesn't make the time settings hold then get back to us.
