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?
