How to know which program is changing my system time.


New Member

On my machine, the time is changing always, I don't know why. (if its 3:15 it gets to 3:19), and every time I set it back to right time it change again by an amount of 4 mins.

Is there a way to fix this ?

thank you.

If they're syncing from the same source there shouldn't be an issue. If this is in a domain the source should be your main DC I would verify they're both syncing to the same source

Turning off ntp will eventually cause the systems to drift too far apart and you'll have problems again.

You can use the w32tm utility. I believe w32tm /query /status will give you the information you need.

In the Date and Time window from above, under the Date and Time tab, click the Change time zone... button.
Select the new time zone in the Time zone drop-down field and click OK.
Click OK on the main Date and Time window to save the time zone change.
