Time synchronise problems in W7

My Notepad W7 DELL420 clock was slowly drifting out of sync  second by second and WSPR 50MHz did not decode anymore.

I use Symmtime, this program reported to synchronise the PC clock  to the selected timeserver  at the given interval 15minutes. But I was running 6 seconds  behind.  forcing synchronise did not chance the PC clock.
I had windows internet time unchecked because Symmtime or Dimension 4 would take over that job?? Both did not!
Dimension 4 did even report the how much the PC clock was adjusted  + or -  seconds  nice. But In real nothing was adjusted.
Must have something to do with access right again.
I did install not in the restricted  programs directory but in my own
C:\ham\  and as  administrator  did not seem to cure it.

I did re-check Windows:  synchronise with an internet time server again. Clicked sync now and instantly the PC clock was adjusted.

Then I modified the default  time update interval of the Windows clock  to 1000sec (decimal)  and removed the SymmTime and Dimension4.
To de-install Symmtime  first rightclick the Symmtime Icon on the taskbar right bottom screen  select exit.
Then the programm can be un-installed  over the Config Programs 
I like Symmtime for XP it is fine but not for W7 it seems.

here is the link that tells you how to do that.

In XP I have no problem Symmtime keeps the clock sychronised.

Grappig Jaap ik had exact hetzelfde probleem lees: http://pe4bas.blogspot.com/2011/11/time-issues-again.html
Windows time server was compleet verdwenen, bestaat gewoon niet meer. Zelfs niet in de systm32 dir. Heb het opgelost met Nettime. ls het maar werkt....73, Bas
