Ever wanted to sync your time. Then you prob went and downloaded a clock sync program. Like precision time which comes with gain. Gain is spyware and gives you tons of pop ups. Well if you didnt know windows Xp and prob the rest of the systems has a built in sync. For xp go to start/run/type regedit. Then click Hkey_Local_Machine/system/control set 001/services/w32time/time providers/ntpclient . In the right pane there should be a icon that says specialpollinterval double click and set a decimal number(unit in seconds) to the frequency of whick you want it to sync your clock. This is cool! How come microsoft doesnt share this with the public in the manual? Hope this helps all!

What manual? You got a manual? I'm jealous! :thumbsup:

Another good one. Not sure I understand how it works but will have to check it out. Does this procedure immediately reset to the correct time when done or keeps resetting every few days or so?

The thing about people

is they change

when they walk away.--Mipso

Thanks! Its all according to how many secs you set it to sync. Like how many secs are in a day and set it to how many days. Does this help you if you need any more help just ask me?
