Max,
In the Control Panel, click on Date & Time.  In the date & Time Properties 
window, click the Internet Time tab.  Make sure the "Automatically 
synchronize with an Internet time server" box is checked.
In the Server: box, copy the following server name and paste it into the 
Server box:
time-c.timefreq.bldrdoc.gov

The time & date gets automatically updated once a day.  You can always open 
this window and click the Update Now button to get an immediate update.

This should keep your clock on time.

Cheers,
Dave M
