I have Windows Pro.

My computer's clock has been speeding up over the last year. It started off by (overnight) speeding up one minute. Then gradually it worked its way up to three, five, and most recently eight minutes. Then the time stays advanced by eight minutes -- it doesn't go further!!

I tried installing Atomic Clock Sync, but this does no good.

I have Karen Penworthy's computer alarm clock installed, but I have to set the alarm to 5:07 a.m. when I want to wake up at 5:00 a.m. I'm sure it's not that program that speeds things up because the time advances even when I don't use it.

Is it a battery on the motherboard? What do I do?

verify that the manual clock setting is working using the updatenow feature

mine took a couple of tries, it's now set to synch in 7 days next?

usually an old battery loses time not gains

No. Try not. Do... or do not. There is no try.

My computer is part of a network -- so the update now feature is not available. Problem is that no one else in the network has this problem!

Is a gremlin at work?

If you are connected to the internet you can auto adjust it using internet time on time properties. when clicking the time bar.
