    If you double click your time icon, you will bring up a properties window. Go to the tab on the right and you will see a check box giving you the option to use an online clock service automatically. Use in accordance with your own preferences.

    anyway, you must not be using winXP, try atomic clock instead

    I did as well. The cause will be your motherboard. Sometimes a BIOS update can fix it, but if you use something like minibubba linked to above it will handle the problem for you.

    I have had very few M/Bs that had perfectly accurate clocks, only one was even close, and that M/B had a Cyrix 486DLC. The accuracy of the system clock is not a high priority where CPU resources are concerned, and as a result the clock gains or loses time. Not much you can do, except update it regularly.
