Well, if you sync today and it works okay, it tells you so in the
If you look at it tomorrow, do you expect to see that it is going to
have synced again? It normally won't look that way.
That is not the way it is supposed to work. There are some "rules"
for how the sync mechanism works, but of course you can change all
It also tells you the next time XP thinks it needs to automatically
sync - 7 days. You may want to do it every day but if your system is
not having some other issue, 7 days is generally okay for most people,
but you can change it. If the time is drifting around the chances are
you have some other problem like motherboard battery. When XP boots,
it looks at the MB first to figure out what time it is and goes from
there. It may or may not sync when XP is finished loading. If the MB
time is wrong, your system will be wrong and it will stay wrong until
you adjust the time or the system syncs again.
