    Maximize the Services folder
    Scroll all the way down to "Windows Time"
    Double click on "Windows Time"
    Put "Startup Type" to "Automatic" (if it's "Disabled")
    "Start" the service
    Apply OK
    Close the Services window

    Try Time synchronize again

    Also please don't reply to yourself in 15minute intervals (You're just not giving enough time for a response)

    Hello larryiam,

    Try checking firewalls (not just Windows firewalls) or anything that might try to filter the website.

    Or if the Internet time server is too busy or is temporarily unavailable. If this is the case, try synchronizing your clock later, or update it manually by double-clicking the clock on the taskbar. You can also try using a different time server.

    Ok so you were patient enough to wait an hour this time!

    Note: Capitals mean yelling too (as I'm sure you're aware)

    It could be that the date and time is too far off the current date and time (silly I know, but for it to work properly the date and time must be close to current)

    Don't bother replying though, if it doesn't work, I'm not interested in getting yelled at for free service. (or anytime actually)
