Is there any way to setup "Windows Time" to check time time each time
the PC boots (and not at intervals of 7 days as default :-)

Even better, is there a way to make it check the time at boot, the
sjut down the service (it won't do anything for 7 days anyway, except
using up a bit of RAM and CPU% I guess :-)

I'd like to set the time at boot and only at boot (no resident).

Windows XP, as loaded, automatically updates the system time every 7 days
from one of two (default) time servers. This update interval can be changed
as follows:

Go to Start/Run. Type in regedit (the registry editor), then press enter.
Using regedit, press control/F (search). Type in "specialpollinterval"
without the quotes. Press enter.

When search has found the first entry, double click on the highlighted name.
Change the "base" to decimal. You will see that the decimal value is 604800,
the number of seconds in 7 days.

Edit this decimal value to any value you desire, remembering that there are
86400 seconds in one day, 3600 seconds in one hour. Click O.K.

Press F3 to find the next entry. Do this for each instance of the decimal
value "specialpollinterval".

Exit regedit.

Now reboot your system for the change to take effect.

Cheers!!!"
