    Losing time

    I have an XP pc that loses sync with the server to get it's time.

    Would this be the CMOS battery? Once restarted the PC picks up the correct time, but obviously the member of staff doesn't want to restart on a regular basis!

    Check the date on the computer that can throw it out of sync if it shows 2220 or suchlike

    The CMOS battery problem usually shows itself when you boot up after the machine being disconnected from the mains... it doesn't happen if the machine has mains power to it.

    you could always schedule a batch file every 30 mins or so

    net time \\server /set /y iirc

    That's a short term fix. Do you think it could be a dodgy network switch port? Going to try a different one anyway. No one else has issues on that switch.

    The same PC had profile issues where the profile wasn't being pushed down correctly. I have changed the PC. gave it a good image.

    There's definitely a network issue somewhere I'm thinking.
