I'll assume you know you have to be connected to the web to set / adjust the
clock with that time server.

You don't mention any error messages, so there's no reason to believe you
aren't making contact.

So one option might be that you don't have your time zone set correctly.

You don't say whether it's just losing minutes possibly a dying computer
battery.

You need to fill in more blanks to get a more accurate answer.

You should see
'Time has been successfully synchronized with [whatever, probably]
time.windows.com on some date goes here.'

Fill in that message and there'll be more info on why it's failing. ie: 1-24
hours off, or minutes.
There's also daylight savings time.

Hi,
There is no error message.Just the time is always behind 1 hour.
It is always one hour behind.I live in New Jersey and it is set to
Central Time(US and Canada).
It is all the time happening to it.Always 1 hr behind no matter what I
do.I even unchecked the auto. syn. with internet server.

On the Time Zone page of Date and Time Properties make sure
you've got a check mark in the box next to "Automatically adjust
the clock for daylight savings changes".

I just reread your other message and the light bulb clicked.
You're in New Jersey. Why are you using the Central Time Zone?
The last time I checked NJ was on the East coast in the Eastern
Time Zone.

you live in eastern time, not central. hence the time difference.
