I have a desktop, probally about 3-4 years old. Just recently reinstalled windows XP (had a pretty nasty virus =/ )

Now my computer clock runs slow... though i'm not sure why. I usually don't turn it off, have no sleep modes or anything like that on other than turning the monitor off. The hard drives are set to stay on. and it'll be 3 hours behind when i come home from work.

Could it be the battery on the mobo? I would think that as long as the comp was plugged in/turned on that wouldn't be a problem.

Any suggestions?

Yes the battery on the motherboard is most likely your issue. You should consider replacing it.
