    Windows Time is constantly out of sync


    As the title suggests, my time is always out of sync, it makes it increasingly difficult to follow conversations on Skype, for instance. I try to manually update the time and it tells me fairly often that there's an error when trying to update. It doesn't matter if my PC is powered off or if I'm using it, the time is bound to get out of sync, so I doubt it has anything to do w/ the CMOS battery. Should I be using a different time server other than time.windows.com? I'm also using Webroot SecureAnywhere Anti-virus. Not sure if that's causing a conflict or not.

    I'm on Windows 10 RTM
    I'm not connected to a domain, just a regular Windows Home network.

    Change time server to time.nist.gov, windows one fails too often.

    Thanks. I think I did the same thing on Windows 7, I had to. That worked then. I thought I tried that a week ago but had problems, so lets see if it sticks now. I'll post back if I have problems.

    Yeah that didn't last long. I got another error when trying to manually update, well, the same one. Even with this time server, the clock got out of sync. Any suggestions?

    Mine was exactly the same when I first installed Win 10, the time would sync with the server but every hour the clock would be 10-15 fast. After booting the PC at the start of the day the time would be correct then it would gain time. For some reason today it has sorted it's self out and keeps time ok, hopeful this will continue.

    My clock right now says 5:29 when it should say 5:21. I did the changes above, set it to time.nist.gov and still having problems.

    Try setting it to time-a.nist.gov and see if that works. I'm using Win 10 and that is what my computer has been using to keep time in sync since the Win 10 upgrade. Let me know how it does for you.

    I'm posting this at exactly 10:22 AM whereas the clock on my system tray says 11:04 AM. I did change the time server to this setting last night and clicked the update button. Obviously this didn't do the trick and my clock is STILL ahead. Any other suggestions?

    Sorry Joshkorn that it didn't work for you. I can't help you any further with this. Someone else that is more computer-savvy than me is going to have to help you with this time difference for I've never had a problem like this happen to me. Good Luck and have a nice day!
