The time on your clock keeps changing to the wrong time.
First, make sure your clock is set to the correct time zone.
Right click the clock.
Select adjust date and time.
Next select change time zone.
If your time zone is correct you may have a bad CMOS battery but you can get around it by having the system sync more often with the internet time.

I am having the same trouble with the clock chaning on my task bar. I have tried the steps given and can complete step number 10 but when I go to step11 there is nothing in the box for me to double click on....is there something else I can try because the random changing of the clock is annoying.
Thanks for your help

I am running Windows 7 Professional on a Dell Latitude laptop. There is no folder labeled "Time Synchronize" that I can find. The closest I can come to adjusting the time /clock issue is through the Local Services Dialog box under Windows Administrative Tools. The only thing it will allow me to do is Start or Disable the service.
This clock issue is driving me bonkers!
Does anybody have any insight into what I can do to fix this problem???
ETA: It is a Dell Latitude E5420. You practically have to disassemble the whole computer to get to the CMOS battery to change it or I would spend the few dollars and do it!
