Anybody having this issue?

Is there a fix?

It is about 8 minutes behind the system clock.

Thanks.

I had the same problem but instead of applying the registry fix, I disabled Internet time synchronization and installed an NTP client. I did this about 4 months back and have never had a problem with teh clock since.

I am not sure if this is related but I noticed today my system clocks are all off my about 5 minutes or so. I have them sync to time.windows.com. I checked the time on the NIST website and it was ahead. I changed all of my settings to now sync with nist1-ny.ustiming.org (closest to me) and it's fixed the time.

The time in the guide is the time of the system clock.

I'll probably do that. I was about to and then got sidetracked on something else this past weekend.

So, it's a drift issue, not a bad time at time.windows.com issue. It's strange every PC in my house drifts the same...
