    My OS clock falls back about 15 min an hour, what do you think causes it?

    wild guess: check the battery on your motherboard...

    no the "real" clock is fine, its the one in windows thats messed up, does anybody know of anything that causes this, I mean a virus or a bug

    weird indeed...

    r u using xp? there is afeature there that syncs your clock with the internet time... try to enable/disable it.

    I don't know any viruses that slow down your windows clock. I coudnt find anythin in MS knowledge base either...

    slowed clock

    i had a similar problem once with win98, i dont think its an XP problem. the battery on the motherboard can do some sporadic stuff and really mess with everything. verify the voltage if its a second-hand box. batteries are cheap (5$) and might be worth a try anyway.
