Right click the time on the Task Bar, then left click Adjust Date/Time.

In the window that pops up, left click on the Internet Time tab, then left click on Change Settings.

Click Yes if a UAC window pops up.

Uncheck Synchronize with an Internet Time Server. This is the Auto Time Setting Function everyone was talking about (don't feel bad; it took me a while to figure it out).

Aha, good to know! Apparently it isn't actually necessary for this fix as, in my ignorance, I just changed the date, rebooted, etc. and it worked.

My apologies for this oversight. It seems that when I incorrectly used Auto Time function, I did mean the Synchronise with the Internet Time Server. So my apologies again & I hope it did not cause too much confusion.

Incidently I have adjusted this in some of my later posts on this problem.

Hey, no worries! You got us started on the right track and, for that, thank you!

MS: make Win7 as wonky as possible and they will 'upgrade' to the wonderlands of Win10.

That's one of the reasons I won't.

No need to reboot for me. Just turned Windows Update to never install updates, went back, clicked the check for updates button and it was ready to go. After that I could safely turn Windows Update back to install updates automatically (if you're really into it).
