Double click on time ( bottom r/h side of screen )
Click on > Internet Time.
Tick > Automatically synchronize.
Server, select by clicking on the button > time.nist.gov
Click Apply & OK.
After RegScrubXP is installed, click on Misc.. & click on > Update clock from Internet every day instead of every week, click Modify.

You might try changing the motherboard battery. Just do a google search on how to, it is easy to do.

i too think jabuck is right. if your clock is lagging behind, it does mean a failing cmos battery. try changing it.

System Clock Loses Time, it's not always the battery.
