    On the "Time and Date" control panel there is a tab for "Internet Time" to automatically sync your system clock from the net, however, the default update interval is 1 week, does anybody have a tweak to change this to like 1 day or even maybe 1 hour?
    Thanks

    It would seem to me that if you need to re-sync that often than you need a new battery.

    maybe if it was you but I deal in accuracies within a network to 1/10 of a second between the workstations.

    Go here and get Atomic Clock Sync. It will synchronize daily.

    I fully understand that there is 3rd party software that will do it for me and I'm currently using a time server on my server that syncs to nist and all the workstations are running client software to sync to the server but I personally would rather use what is built in the OS. Call me crazy but I prefer to do that. I do find it a little odd that MS didn't give us the option to change the interval.

    Try editing your timedate.cpl file. It worked for me when I tried it.
