    Double click on the time to bring up the clock options and click on the internet time tab.

    Make sure the Automatically sychronize with an internet time server is ticked.

    Click on the down arrow and change to time.nist.gov and click apply. Click the update now button.

    See if that helps.

    Regards Howard :)
