    Windows XP has got a built in feature to update the time using the internet. Perhaps you have got a duff time server entered in?

    I actually have a similar question, mine computer is also fast but for me it's worse becuase my computer acts like a TIVO. so when I set it to record a movie or tv show it will either start late or too early meaning I miss ther very end or begining of the show i wanted to record.

    Is there a way I can get my computer to automatically update the clock once or twice a day? If not through windows XP, is there a third party program that does NOT have spyware/addware in it? (even if there is a small-price to pay for it?)

    Your MB battery might need replacing if your time starts to change. Your clock is tied to the bios setting. If the battery is low, you might begin losing the settings.
