You may have noticed that your Windows clock is drifting a bit since you installed the new Daylight Savings Time patch. Or perhaps you’ve noticed that it’s now generating an error when trying to synchronize your clock with the standard time servers. Apparently the new patch isn’t compatible with either of the standard time servers installed with Windows. But the fix is very simple. The NIST time server is compatible. You just need to add it.
– Double click your clock to open the Date and Time Properties
– Go to the Internet Time tab
– Click in the Server: field and paste the following server name – time-nw.nist.gov
– Click the Update Now button
– You should get a message saying the time has been successfully synchronized
And now you don’t have an excuse for being late (or early)…
