Xp not updating clock

Updating the taskbar can be done by clicking on it or hovering over the icons to create an animation, and then my clock will jump to the correct time. A couple other troubleshooting steps to take would be to perform a clean boot (https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/929135) to make sure there's no 3rd party software interfering, and seeing if the clock updates in safe mode (https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/12376/windows-10-start-your-pc-in-safe-mode). Turns out that in safe mode the clock does work like it normally should.

So it's not that the clock stops running, because it does know the correct time, it's literally that it does not update the clock in the right down corner :/ This is actually really annoying, because im so used to just using that clock that now for like 3 weeks im still not used to it that the time is usually wrong on it when i quickly look at it. That means that it is an application i have installed that interferes with the clock?

Right-click your clock, and then click Adjust Date/Time.2.

Notice that Internet time synchronization is enabled by default.3. Windows XP contacts the Internet time server and sets your clock. Now, your PC is connected to the Internet time server.

The Mac I used to have did it, and I was dismayed to find that the PC I bought a couple of years ago also does it.

So it already moved an hour ahead on the actual weekend to “spring forward” to DST, but then just moved ahead again an extra hour this past weekend.

Hello, My computer will not allow me to turn on the windows automatic updates.

You can now select one of the provided time servers from the drop-down list, which includes Microsoft’s own time server (time.windows.com) as well as several regional servers for the National Institute of Standards and Technology, popularly known as “the folks with the atomic clock.” But you’re not limited to the servers in the list; you can add any valid time server yourself by typing the address into the Server field.After synchronizing, however, our PC recognizes the correct time as AM.Windows will automatically sync with the time server again in 7 days, and as long as your PC doesn’t have faulty hardware, such as a drained CMOS battery, your local PC clock shouldn’t drift too much in the interim.Microsoft Windows has long had the ability to set its date and time clock by synchronizing with a timekeeping server via the Internet.This means that most users never have to worry about setting the date and time in Windows, or correcting the time after events like power outages or a switch to daylight-saving time.
