I have a user in a remote site that is seeing strange things with the clock on her taskbar. The clock regularly gains time. For example, she called me one hour ago today because the time was off and wouldn't let her log on to the domain, I got the time reset and it has already gained 5 minutes?! I don't think it is the CMOS battery since she doesn't shut down the computer each night she just logs off the machine.
The machine is runnign XP Pro SP2 with all the latest updates (we use a WSUS server). This computer is in a different time zone than I am right now. I believe it is Mountain time. I have had her check those settings and they are correct. Does anyone know of a patch that may fix this issue? This is the only computer that is reporting the problem.

Thanks :thumbsup:

If I recall in either standby or hibernation the power is at least partially turned off which means that the CMOS battery could be the problem. They are only a couple of dollars, give it a try.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.
