Synchronize windows time with internet time server.

Q: Synchronize windows time with internet time server.

I was trying to sync Windows time with Internet timer Server. I was following this tutorial : Time Synchronization - Turn On or Off in Windows 8

For the first option, I couldn't couldn't find the necessary options.

For the second option, I've already set my settings right.
But, still my windows 8 time was showing wrong.

I had to change my BIOS time to make the necessary change to Windows time.

So, what happened here. Can windows 8 override BIOS time? or How can I set Windows time to Internet time server even if my BIOS time is wrong.

Thank you for your help.

Preferred Solution: Synchronize windows time with internet time server.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Synchronize windows time with internet time server.

Yes the OS can override the BIOS time. It uses UTC to update. Check your time zone in Date & Time tab, to see if that is why your time is off.

Hello,

I am unable to update my internet time I keep getting the error message that says "An error occurred while Windows was synchronizing with time-a.nist.gov." I tried synchronizing with time-a.nist.gov, time.nist.gov, and time.windows.com -- I guess these are the default Internet time servers.

Windows 7 PC doesn't synchronize with Internet time server "time.windows.com". When I go to "Date and Time -> Internet Time -> Change settings" and click on "Update now" it never completes.



If I change to another Internet time server and click on "Update now" or "OK" it gives me an error.



Is this a permissions issue?

I confirmed that the Windows Time service is set to Automatic and is Started, but there is no change. Also tried the following commands:


Code:
net stop w32time
w32tm /unregister
w32tm /register
net start w32time

I have 6 computers in a workgroup that need to be synchronized to a workgroup server.  The server is a virtual Win 7 running on a Windows 10 host.  Neither the server or client computers have internet access.  I started the process by configuring
the host to use its CMOS clock as its time source, which seems to have worked. The client computers are not virtual and can communicate with the Win 10 host as I am able to RDP to the host from the clients.  I made the following registry key changes to
get that accomplished.

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\W32Time\Config]
"AnnounceFlags"=dword:00000005

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\W32Time\Parameters]
"Type"="NoSync"

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\W32Time\TimeProviders\NtpClient]
"Enabled"=dword:00000000

"SpecialPollTimeRemaining"=hex(7):00,00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\W32Time\TimeProviders\NtpServer]
"Enabled"=dword:00000001

<-------End of REG file------->
After applying these changes, I ran the following 'w32tm /config /update /syncfromflags: NO 

I get a message that the command is successful.

These changes are based on the following post:

aaaah, I'm so confused. This issue first came up when I was trying to download a new internal antivirus database from AVG (Free Edition), which is my antivirus software. I've only been using it for about three weeks, but it seems to work fine. However, it alerted me that my system time was incorrect, and when I went to change it I discovered that it was nearly 36 hours slow.

My first reaction was to go to the Internet Time tab and click "Update Now", to time.microsoft.com, in order to get as exact a system time as I could. I was told there was an error synchronizing with time.microsoft.com: "The peer was unreachable". So I tried the other default server, time.nist.gov. Same error.

I set my system time to within 15 hours of the actual time it should be, as per troubleshooting instructions. This had no effect, so I tried disabling both my antivirus (AVG), and my firewall. I use Windows Firewall. This made no changes either.

I'm out of ideas! My internet connection at the time was wireless but the signal was strong, and I'd had no problems with it copping out randomly, so I don't think that was the issue. Can anyone think of something I might have missed?

I did something - don't remember what, yes I know that's dumb - to try to block UDP because I kept getting notified that Helkern worm was trying to get in.

Now I can't synchronize time (the time thing on on the bottom right of screen) and in fact it keeps saying it has never tried to synchronize time & also gives me an error for both the windows and nist time servers. This is whether I am direct to my cable modem or through a (new) router. I have WinXP Pro fully updated, Kaspersky, TeaTimer, SpyWareBlaster, some other stuff. Other web access seems ok.

Hi newbee_4...

you may need to forward a port in your router in order to let the time service synchronise.

The following website should be able to help you set that up:
http://portforward.com/routers.htm

All you need to do is select your router on the list and then when the next page loads, select the NTP link.

Hope that helps

I've been having on-again, off-again problems with the clock randomly resetting to a day or two in the future. In the past, going into the internet time settings and telling it to update again fixed it. However the last time or two this has happened, I kept getting a message saying the connection to the server had timed out, and since I was in a hurry, I just reset the date manually and went on my way. The most recent occurrence, I had plenty of time on my hands and decided to see if I could figure out what was up with the internet time sync, and switched it to a different server to see if that would fix it. It didn't, and after a couple tries instead of saying the connection had timed out, it said that "the peer is unreachable". I went through all the default time servers and it did the same thing - it time out several times, and then it said the peer was unreachable. I then went and plugged in servers from this list- same thing. If anyone has any idea what's happening or how to fix it, I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks!

The computer clock in my Windows 7 b7100 installation has been gaining about 30 seconds per day. I have tired setting the clock in Win7 to synchronize with time.windows.com and 4 different government servers. But with each set individually, the system clock never seems to be updated, and gains time every day.

In the past few weeks I've tried going to this registry:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\w32time\TimeProviders\NtpClient

And changing the default value of 604800 for the DWORD 'SpecialPollInterval' to 86400 (1 day) and 3600 (1 hour). But the system never synchronized the time after waiting 1 day and 1 hour respectively. I have to do it manually every day with Win7's 'Date and Time' > 'Interent Time' > Change Settings' > 'Update Now'.

This same system has never had any problem with synchronizing time with installations of Windows XP and Windows Vista in the past.

Does anyone have any idea what may be causing this?

Thanx

I recently posted in this forum about the problem I was having with proficient hackers. I subsequently received really useful information which allowed me to secure my PC just a little bit better. Since then though the hacker has targetted my NAT router and compromised it.
 
There is a reason for starting a separate thread today. 
 
What I found is that I can't browse anywhere on the internet using HTTP and still be safe. Very quickly my traffic is detected and so the PC hostname and my live IP address become known. Forexample, my presence on this site is something that can be used to identify me. The number of concurrent users is not that high at the present time.
 
And if my IP becomes known, apparently my router can be successfully attacked. 
 
Of course I can browse using a proxy but I've found that I can't log on to BC and post a reply if I'm using a proxy. And the same is true of other sites.
 
So what does this tell me ? Well, most of the internet is being monitored by an unknown number of hackers who can ignore or use that information as they see fit. So this is a serious problem.
 
And therefore, here's my question: is there any plan to implement SSL/TLS on the BC site in the near future ? 'Cos I'd really like to continue posting here.

Hi there. Looking forward to NOT spending a fortune at the local computer store OR having my hard-drive reformatted to eliminate the following problem, if possible:

Sometimes we pull up a web address (or link) fine, but the very next time it times-out (server error message - either in Firefox or IE) or vice versa. We have run AVG antispyware, AVG Anti-rootkit, AVG antivirus, Spybot & Lavasoft in Safe & Reg. Mode - all recent versions, but can't eliminate this random issue. It's NOT the modem, or the hub, because our laptop (running Vista) connects (wirelessly) to any link or web address EVERY time - no time-outs.

(I'll tell you some background before I get to the issue in case there is something related)

I recently cleaned my computer case (took it all apart and vacuumed it out). When I plugged everything back in and tried to boot up, all of my BIOS settings had cleared and I had to re-enter/set them again. I found this odd, but maybe the CMOS battery is failing or dead. A few days later I realize my time is off by about 15 minutes (roughly, the amount of time the PC was unplugged as I was cleaning it). However, when I left click on the time in the bottom right, "Change date and time settings", select the Internet Time tab, and click on Change Settings, I get the following error:

Unable to Continue
You do not have permission to perform this task.
Please contact your computer administrator for help.

Unfortunately, I have the only account on this machine, I am the admin, and this is not a domain machine (it's a home PC). I have no clue how or why this error has come about but it's rather annoying. I went into my BIOS and manually set the time to make it accurate and hopefully fix the issue but I still get the error. To further complicate things, when I look in the list of Services, there is no Windows Time service.

Hi, I am hoping that someone can help me resolve a problem that i have been having since day 1 with windows 7.

The problem is that my PC will occasionally freeze requiring a hard reset.

The PC itself is solely used as a HTPC with Media Center running on it 24/7. Its running Win7 64 bit. There doesn't seem to be any common tasks that it will freeze up on, although a possible slight propensity for it to happen at 100% CPU use (encoding).

Its not heat on the CPU (it has also happened when at idle), all my drivers are up to date, I thought it might be Catalyst Control Center but it froze without this too, bios was updated the other week and yet i had three freezes in a day today.

The main clue (I think) is that there is always some problem with the time when it reboots after the freeze. A lot of the time it will wake up and think that its 2000, exactly 10 years to the second has been lost from the system clock. obviously this affects the scheduling of tasks, scheduled recordings and so on. Until recently there's been very little detail in the event log, often i have seen the last 1/2 hour to 5 hours missing completely and showing the wrong date when it resumes.

The last three freezes it has (seemingly) been able to retain all the even log and i have noticed that there is a event relating to synchronising the system time shortly before the freeze. When it has rebooted on each occasion, if i go through to changing the internet time settings, it tells me that the time server ha... Read more

A:Windows 7 Freeze and Possible Time Server Problems

Have exactly the same problem but at least I think I've found out why. The culprit appears to be searchindexer.exe.
My freeze is fairly random except that it will always occur when the tv listing update runs in the early am.
My setup:
- Windows 7 home premium
- Originally an ATI 4300 video card - now it's a Nvidia 430
- Hauppage PVR
- Asus N4L motherboard with 2M memory
- Home Server for pictures, music, etc.
I've gone thru a heck of lot of testing. Here's what I did:
1. Replaced the ATI with Nvidia. I too was seeing a bunch of errors and suspected the flood crippled the system. Didn't fix anything. Nothing in any of the system or media center logs; system just froze and required a reboot.
2. Replaced the hard drive and cable. Denada.
3. Replaced the memory. Denada,
4. Replaced the hard drive. Denada.
5. Double checked and reloaded all the latest drivers. Denada
6. Killed all the services that I could reasonably kill. Denada
7. Cleaned out all of the extraneous autoruns. Denada
8. Rebuilt the entire Windows 7 media center. Turned of aero and only loaded Total Media Player. Set up Home Server. Went thru the autorun and service cleanup. Downloaded all new drivers. Turned on monitors for temperature of CPUs and GPU - all remained fine. Ran memory test for two days with no errors. Denada and still not a single event log error posted - the system just stopped.

Hi,
we have a requirement to get the following data through code (c# or c++)

Boot Time - After powering on the device, the boot duration is the time between the start of the OS kernel and the launch of the logon screen.


Logon Time - The time between user enter credentials and the desktop being shown.


Start up Time ?  The time between user authentication, all startup apps loading and the device being ?ready?

I have a 4 year old computer that runs perfectly, except when I turn it off at night and then back on the next day, I loose a few hours on the time date at bottom of screen. I ajust each time I use it but the same thing happens each time I turn it off. Could it be the clock battery or ? My operating system is Windows XP Home
Thanks Lc
 

A:Windows XP time/date clock looses time after shut down.

Welcome to TSG...A bad CMOS battery will cause your machine to lose time. If the system is four years old, you're eligible for that issue...also, if the system has spent any lengthy amount of time (weeks or more) unplugged from AC power, it's more likely to happen.

Next reboot (after leaving it overnight), enter BIOS (setup) and see if the time there is slipping as well.

The battery itself (if that's what's bad) is cheap to replace...less than five bucks.

Please give us some specs on the hardware-make, model, etc.-and we can help you with battery replacement instructions.

A laptop running XP SP1 is set to synchronize with files in a users' directory so he can continue working from home. Until recently the files were stored on a server called server01, they're now on a server called K2. When his computer goes to synchronize the files it doesn't recognise that server01 doesn't exist anymore, and repeatedly pops up error messages on his screen. I've been through all of the setup options and properties several times and there is no mention of 'server01' anywhere .. I can't figure out how it's picking it up - I've deleted all the offline files, disabled synchronizing and so on and so forth but when you turn synchronizing back on it still attempts to sync with the non-existent server. Anybody have any ideas how to stop it?

Oh and it sees K2 fine and synchronizes all the appropriate files from there...

I previously started a thread about this at:

Determine what happens on start up

But that's 9 days ago. I apologize if I should NOT start a new thread instead of adding to the old one.

The issue is that from time to time, say at least once an hour or more, certain functions on the computer stop. I cannot access the Internet. I cannot ping. I cannot launch a new application. If I am already in, say, Word, I can continue to edit that file. But of course I cannot print. Originally when this started, it seemed to last as much as 20 minutes. Now it lasts about 1 minute. I've tried to write a batch file which will ping Google endlessly and note the times but that didn't work (it echoed the time, then pinged, then echoed the time, but the time didn't change:

echo off
set i=
FOR /L %%i IN (1,1,3) DO (

echo %time%
ping Google
echo %time%
)

Anyway, a friend of mine who is in IT Support thinks this is an SMM virus. That would be very bad news (I think). I've run MalwareBytes and Kaspersky and also Combofix and they all report no problems.

Does anyone have an idea where to go from here?

As for the ping failure, the cable modem appears to continue to work in that my WiFi is not affected by this.

Steps taken:

-Fresh install (From factory recovery partition) of windows 7, fully updated and drivers installed.

-CMOS Battery Replaced (&Tested with voltmeter)

-Bios Flashed & updated

-windows time service is disabled via services.msc

-"synchronize with timer server" unchecked in advanced time settings.

Further information

BIOS time resets to 01/01/2009 00:00:00 when windows time is updated/changed manually. If windows time is not changed manually, bios time remains accurate.

Upon restart after windows time change, and directly entering bios, the date and time aboved is what the bios time is set to.

Recurring problem

A:BIOS Time Resets if and only if windows time is changed

Hope someone has a better idea, but the first thing I thought of is damage occurred when flashing the bios. I recommend not doing that merely as an update unless a problem is present.

It's critical that my PC keeps the exact time as I record TV shows on it so just a few seconds off one way or the other will make me miss the start or end of my shows.

I found it was drifting off too much between syncs so I found a program that lets me set it to sync daily, however it seems like most of the time it gets the time completely wrong, often as much as 30-90 seconds off. I did notice that when syncing manually in the time settings it normally gets the right time each time, so I don't know why the scheduled syncs get the wrong time.

I did try several of the time servers with the same results.

Is there just no way to get the Windows time sync to work properly and if not are there free third party programs that can do it reliably?

Thanks

Please before you reply to this- verify that your taskbar minute is changing at the same time as the win clock (click on the taskbar time/date...).

I am one of the many unfortunate owners of an Asus motherboard with a UEFI clock freeze problem. The clock randomly freezes and when it does, apart from the Windows time going wonky, it causes havoc with certain applications that I run that rely on the BIOS clock. This includes Precision Manuals Development Groups (PMDG) Boeing 737 simulator for FSX. The problem is widely reported on the ASUS ROG forums and affects quite a few of their high end boards. Mine is the Hero Maximus VI. They are as confused about the issue as us unhappy owners and have yet to identify a solution other than a total reset of the BIOS which is irritating when you have tweaked settings for over clocking. This is not a BIOS battery issue, it is a software or hardware fault that is causing the BIOS clock to freeze. So no "change your battery" comments please

Anyway, in an effort to fault find, is there a way to totally disconnect Windows time from the BIOS clock? As I understand it, when Windows corrects its time using the time servers, it will adjust the BIOS clock also? Maybe this is when the freezes occur and if I can stop this process, maybe the problem will "go away".

A:Disconnect Windows time from the BIOS time

Try this software:

I think that you can set it to sync each minute.

XP Pro SP2, all latest updates. When I reboot, I can correctly sync to a time server, but after an unknown amount of time it goes back to saying "The RPC server is unavailable" instantly after clicking Update Now, regardless of what server I tell it to sync to. I also noticed that if I view my nForce Networking Controller status, then click Properties and go to the Authentication tab, everything is greyed out. If I hit OK without changing anything (I can't change it even if I wanted to), a message pops up saying "An unexpected condition occured. Not all of your requested changes in settings could be made" and just goes back to that window. I have to hit cancel to close it. These two issues seem to be related since right after I reboot, the Authentication tab works normally (as well as the time sync like I mentioned above), and they both seem to stop working at the same time. I have no idea if it happens after something I run or if it's just after a certain amount of time or what. Any ideas?

I have 6 computers in a workgroup that need to be synchronized to a workgroup server.  The server is a virtual Win 7 running on a Windows 10 host.  Neither the server or client computers have internet access.  I started the process by configuring
the host to use its CMOS clock as its time source, which seems to have worked. The client computers are not virtual and can communicate with the Win 10 host as I am able to RDP to the host from the clients.  I made the following registry key changes to
get that accomplished.
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\W32Time\Config]
"AnnounceFlags"=dword:00000005

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\W32Time\Parameters]
"Type"="NoSync"

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\W32Time\TimeProviders\NtpClient]
"Enabled"=dword:00000000

"SpecialPollTimeRemaining"=hex(7):00,00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\W32Time\TimeProviders\NtpServer]
"Enabled"=dword:00000001

<-------End of REG file------->

After applying these changes, I ran the following 'w32tm /config /update /syncfromflags: NO 
I get a message that the command is successful.

Hello!
I've already asked the
question regarding auto-starting the data collector sets and have posted MS's answer - now it seems the issue can be much broader: I failed to make my user defined data collector sets start according to their schedules, for example:
I created a test data collector set (with several CPU counters), saved it as a template and tested it on Windows Server 2008R2 and Windows Server 2019:
2008R2

2019

I've tested various user defined data collector sets on all my Windows Server 2019 computers - physical and virtual, domain and non-domain joined, the result is always the same - the data collector sets just don't start and the following event(s) get registered
in the Diagnosis-PLA log:

Here's the codes' description -
https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/openspecs/windows_protocols/ms-pla/590752a5-ddc3-49e4-9914-147a90bd0193

No issues arise when starting the data collector sets manually.
Can anyone tell me if it works on your computers with Windows Server 2019?

Regards,
Michael
