A workaround in this instance is to change the NTP client to update more often.
Open through the start menu search box, and then find this registry key: The default time period is 7 days calculated in seconds.
If you are using Mc Afee or another firewall, you’ll need to use the configuration utility to unlock NPT access on UDP port 123.
I then went and set it to synchronize every 24 hours instead of the X number of days it takes by default. Hey Brink Just passing by to say that I face "difficulties" with Windows Clock synchronization, as well.
I changed the number of seconds, you know what I mean. Then I went on and added a couple more time servers, following a tutorial from Vista forums. Initially, on my main OS (Windows 10 Pro build 10586.71), I had the clock left on its default settings.
The error you will typically get is “An error occurred while Windows was synchronizing with time. In the Internet Time Settings dialog, you can change the default server by choosing an item from the drop-down, or you can type in a new entry.
This operation returned because the timeout period expired.” Changing the Time Server You can change the default time server by right-clicking on the clock, and then choose Adjust Date/Time from the menu. You can also test it immediately by clicking the Update now button.I’ve had the best luck with gov, but that might be because of my location.
