Hi Guys, I am using Win XP and it runs our app. Our app is written in Java. I know that Java take the OS clock and our app display the time. However, I notice some of our XP pc's clock is like a couple minutes fast. I was wondering if XP offer some sort of self-correct mechnism or is there some option in XP that we can set for it to self-correct the time.
Please if anyone know if XP has issue with clock or anything, it would be great if someone can post something here.
I used to have XP and I remember that it had the option to connect to an Internet time source periodically, and synchronize the computer's clock with that. I don't have any XP computers any more but I think it was the Date/Time control from the Control Panel where you did that.

I just follow your suggestions but the only check box I saw for for adjusting Day light savings, not quite what I wanted
but thanks anyways,
It might have been somewhere else in the control panel, as I said I don't have XP any more. So (in particular) I can't poke around in other options looking for it, whereas you still do have XP so you could.
