Windows 7: System Time Service

27 Jan 2009   #11

Windows 7 Build 7277
 
 

I noticed that when I tried to do that it said that it was down. So I chose another service.

Up until now the Windows Time Service was always stopped when I first booted up so I played around with it a bit in services.msc.

I set it to Automatic and delayed start, then under logon I set that to local service with no password (the picture shows one, ignore that), and set it to restart under all 3 failure boxes.

Now it finally seems to have stuck in the "Start" position, where it's supposed to be.

I installed WIN 7 over two weeks ago and twice now since then my system clock has changed date and time on me. This morning instead of it being Tuesday January 27th in said Wednesday January 28th. I checked Services and time zone settings and everthing seems ok there.
Any ideas?

Any ideas?
Check your Event Viewer for any entries pertaining to it and check the actual clock to see when it last synchronised and if that succeeded or failed.

Is the computer old? Could be a failing CMOS battery I suppose, although that is rare.

This looks bad, it absolutely changed to the wrong date then at midnight it changed to the 28th:

In this case I would, assuming you've double and triple checked that your time and timezone settings are correct, see if changing the CMOS battery helps. They are pretty cheap and you can buy them just about everywhere including drug stores.

You could try this..

Go to Start/All programs/Accessories and right-click Command prompt and "Run as Administrator".

Enter
Quote:
net stop w32time
w32tm /unregister
w32tm /register
net start w32time
Then hit the Enter key after each line. Reboot and see what happens.

Thank you very much. Yes I did double checked the settings. I'll run the script and see what happens over a couple of days and will get a new battery today or tomorrow.
Thanks again.

Added: when I typed in : net stop w32time
it said the service was not running!? and I just checked it earlier this morning.

Now it is saying (in C prompt):
"The specified service does not exist as an installed service"

Think I got it back now.
