    time zone

    Make sure and set your time zone correctly. If you change your time and your time zone is incorrect when connect to the internet it will synchronize the time back to what ever time zone you have set.

    To check double click on the time in the lower right hand corner and the second tab at the top will be time zone.

    The hardware clocks in PCs are very inaccurate. You are best off configuring the Windows XP Internet Time feature or using a program like Automachron.

    Your ISP should have a time server you can use.

    thanks for the reply. Windows XP internet time feature seems to be working well.
