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

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

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.

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
