CLOCK - Win XP Pro Peer Network

Archived from groups: microsoft.public.windowsxp.customize (More info?)

Hello ---

We are running WIN XP PRO on 3 systems on a peer network. One of the
laptops keeps having a situation where the time on the clock in the system
tray is wrong. The laptop has one administrator and one limited user
account. I go under the administrator and set the clock and it seems as
though the next day on the limited account the time will be wrong and upon
signon the system asks for us to enter regedit. Is there something that
needs to be done in regedit to make the clock settings apply to all
accounts? Not sure the regedit error has anything to do with the clock
situation as it may have to do with a windows update being downloaded to the
limited account and not to the administrator? If anyone has some advice or
helpful guidance, I'd appreciate it.

Thanks, Brenda

    Did you check the time in the system BIOS?

    At the time that you shutdown that laptop, is the time still correct?
    It could be that the "Real Time Clock" hardware is defective, or that the RTC
    battery needs replacing.


    | upon signon the system asks for us to enter regedit.

    - does this occur before or after the "username+password" prompt?
    - what is the exact wording of the message wanting you to enter regedit?

    I believe it is still correct upon shutdown but I have not verified that. I
    will check. I understand something could be defective but not sure how to
    reduce possibilities to come to that conclusion. Wanting us to enter
    regedit occurs after the username and password. I do not have the exact
    wording wrote down, I will obtain that and post once I have it. thanks for
    the input.

    The REGEDIT message appears directly after login to the limited user
    account. Here's what it says:

    IVPSvMgr

    Failed to update the system registry, Please try using REGEDIT. With a
    button for "OK".

    Time appears to be correct now. I checked BIOS and all is correct there and
    it seems it is tracking now; so not sure what's happened, but I will keep an
    eye on it.
