I don't why, but I keep getting this warning, W32time in the system logs The time service has not been able to synchronize the system time for 49152 seconds because none of the time providers has been able to provide a usable time stamp. The system clock is unsynchronized and when you click on the link for Microsoft, they are no help at all. I could type the long winded explaination but here's what they say in a nutshell - If the W32Time 36 message appears on a computer that is not a domain controller, such as a home computer, business workstation, or member server, no user action is required. By default, these systems do not provide the time to requesting clients and should be the only computers affected by this event. After connectivity or communication with the time source is restored, the computer will resume synchronizing with its source. All Microsoft is saying is don't worry it will fix itself.
I know, I can fix this problem two ways, I could click on Time and Date and Update the server - time.windows.com or in - DOS, I could type - Net Stop W32time and Net Start W32time and this would synchronize the time and everything would be back to normal again, or you would think so, but in 3 days I would get the same warning and I would have to reset the time again. I have to tell you this time thing is driving me nuts and Microsoft is no help at allllllllllllllllllllllllllllll. I do have the box checked to auto. syn. with internet time server. When I get this warning, I check my systems clock and the clock in Date and Time and they are the same time, so what gives here. I have tried to W32tm / Unregister and W32tm / register and no matter what I do, Windows still goes haywire. I know how important the clock is in windows, anything opened, closed, sent, or received has to have the right time.
Ok, so how do I fix this problem to get Windows to stop messing with the clock because fixing this all the time is really starting to get me ticked off. I wonder how many other users have this problem and don't know about it. Their is no box that pops up and alerts the user to this problem - If their was I would see this every 3 days - Windows Forgot How TO Tell Time.
Thanks any help with getting windows to learn how to tell time will be greatly appreciated.
