Time Clock Changes
Robert4390 Feb-10-02 02:49 AM
The time clock on my Win 98 desktop has been losing some time lately. The machine boots up and runs perfectly. Do some games and programs suspend time? I have recently installed and have been playing a Nascar game. Thank You.

I also have been seeing that problem on my 'older ' machine...I've noticed if I leave
IE running, that I lose about 1 hour a day on the clock.

I'm running win98se and IE5.5..

Hi There

Not sure what causes the time loss problem. But if you go to http://www.worldtimeserver.com/
and click on atomic clock sync in the upper left of page. There's a free download there that will help keep your clock up to date

I hope this will help
Regards,
Chris

The CMOS battery may be weak. Larry

Actually, I did some checking and came up with this:

If you have Norton AntiVirus installed, there was a Bug in Norton 2000 and Win98, run ' Live Update'


Or:

head to Microsoft's Support "Knowledge Base " and read article ' Q189706 '

Good Luck

MSKB Q189706 is something I have not seen before. Thanks for the pointer. So, what, if anything, fixed the problem? Larry

I don't know Larry, the only thing I can figure is the game. When I first put it in, I could not get the keyboard to function with it, so, I gave up for then. Next time I turned the set on and accessed the game, everything worked. The clock is working ok too! Damnifino!

for me, it seems like it was the ' Norton ' fix.
