C:\Windows\winsxs\amd64_microsoft-windows-time-service_31bf3856ad364e35_6.1.7600.16385_none_e49c555686fbabd6\w32time.dll

Right click on Computer and select Manage then Services and Applications and then Services. Find Windows Time if it is there. Right click on it and select Properties then:

Is there a Display Name? Should say:

Windows Time

Is there a description? It should say:

Maintains date and time synchronization on all clients and servers in the network. If this service is stopped, date and time synchronization will be unavailable. If this service is disabled, any services that explicitly depend on it will fail to start.


Path to Executable:

C:\Windows\system32\svchost.exe -k LocalService

Service Status:

Started

On the Logon page:

Check: This Account

It should say Local Service. Even if it does, Change it to:

NT AUTHORITY\LocalService

Delete the two password entries

Then Apply. (It should change back to Local Service and readd the passwords.) It should tell you it will take effect after you restart the service.

Go back to the General page and Stop the service then Start the service.

Report any errors you get.

No errors other than the usual "Settings can't be saved" Do you want me to run SFC to check the files?

When exactly do you get the Savings can't be Saved? Was then when you were in the Services Menu or when you tried to set the time?

You can run SFC anytime.

Try Process Monitor again. This time before you save it, set a filter :

Filter, Filter, change Architecture to Path. Change Is to Contains. Type in Time in the next box. Include stays the same. Hit Add then Apply and OK.

That should just leave the critical lines in the file and make it easier to read. Then Save, click Events displayed..

CSV, OK

Don't suppose it made any difference.

Odd thing I see in your ProcessMon log is that it look in Syswow64 and in System (not System32) before finding it in Windows.

Mine just looks in System32. I will try to get my friend with a 64 bit system to do the same thing and send me the log.
The other thing I see is what looks like a write to the CMOS to set the time there. That may be where it is failing since the writes to the registry all look good.

Can you boot into the BIOS setup and set the time manually? Does it take?

I assume this is the Sony Vgn-nw265f we are working on. Go to

http://esupport.sony...=3#/downloadTab

Under Motherboard should be two entries.

Intel® 5 Series 6 Port SATA AHCI Controller / ICH9M-E/M SATA AHCI Controller Driver Update

and

Intel® Chipset Driver

See if you can download, save and install (right click and run as admin) either or both of them.

PS. We are going on a trip tomorrow. Won't get back until Friday. Will take my computer but don't know if I will have web access or not so replies may be slow.

Go in to regedit to

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\W32Time

and anywhere you see

@%SystemRoot%\system32\w32time.dll

change it to

@%SystemRoot%\w32time.dll (if there is more info on the line that should stay the same)

Also check HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\W32Time\TimeProviders\NtpClient
