Can anyone recommend a good program that connects to the internet and adjusts your Windows time clock accordingly? Mainly on bootup.
It will require somewhere to enter internet authentication details too (to be able to connect to the net).

Thanks

you could change the $3 battery on the main board
sounds easier

I have to be able to enter internet authentication details ... which I can't with that XP one, unless there's something I can do in the registry...


and it's not the mobo battery, as we think it's grabbing the time from the attached UPS.

i guess the easy way to prove if it is the ups. if oyu run the s/w that comes with the ups you can assess the ups and setup date/time, power cut in/out etc.

adjust the clock on the ups to something silly like one year ago and 6 months ago and reverse the hours by 12 so if it says 3pm, make it 3am.
save the ups data, set the pc to normal time and restart.
