Hello, and Thanks for looking at my problem;

I removed malware last week (guided by an expert from this website using Combofix) and now I can't update/synchronize my clock with any of the time servers that I had before: time.windows.com, time.nist.gov, etc.

Seems like some settings got changed, and the server is not contacted (computer icons in taskbar aren't lighting up.) Have checked the firewall settings on my antivirus, Spybot, etc. and they do not seem to be the issue: Windows Time Service Diagnostic Tool is set for Outbound (client); Internet Time Synchronization is set on Enable.

In services.msc, Windows Time is started and in Automatic mode.

I realize this isn't a major isssue, but any advice you may have would be most appreciated.
