|I found your post because I had the same problem. I found this at Pogo:|
"We've recently discovered that Sun has posted a work-around to an issue with Java that incidentally causes some timers to run too fast. You need to change the runtime parameter in the Sun Java Plug-in."
They are referring to Pogo's game timers but I found that it corrected my pc clock and it no longer runs fast. It would gain up to 20-30 mins while playing timed Pogo Games (non timed games didn't cause an issue). The time would correct only if I re started Windows.
Now some of the games that seemed to time out really fast, are running slower which is actually the speed it should have been. I guess I got used to it being too fast all the time.
In the first area titled "Java Applet Runtime Settings" which should be the top one, click on View.
Click nn the far right under: Java Runtime Parameters section, type in
I then rebooted and now the clock keeps the correct time while playing Timed Pogo Games.
