Answers :

Hello, I have the same problem. The clock changes totally different after startup.
Does keping time refer to getting offa little at a time or suddenly its wrong? If it is gradual, it is the crystal on the system board. That is strange though because hte sytesm timing is baseed off that clock. If it is sudden different, than I suggest you look at your time zone settings and if you are pulling time from a time server somewhere that is setting your time to malasia or somewhere else for that matter. There are some viruses too that will alter the time this way in order raise havic with applications that are dependant on the clock to perform functions. Those are the three points that I think you should look at. Start with seeing if it is changing slowly or suddenly different. how that helps,
