Question about Microsoft XP Computers & Internet
Hello First I'm warning You that my English isn't very well. I have a problem with time synchronization in Windows XP. I have about 20 PCs in my local network and all of them synchronize time from the same local server. Some of them has right time but some others has time about +3 minutes to server and I don't know why. I've changed registry entry on every PC to sync time every 30 minutes. In one of the PCs with wrong time I can see a message in time settings window: "Time was succesfully synchronized from xx.xx.xx.xx (IP address) at 2013/07/23 at 06:07 Next sync will be 2013/07/23 at 06:37" So I was waiting until 06:37 and the message has changed to: "Time was succesfully synchronized from xx.xx.xx.xx (IP address) at 2013/07/23 at 06:37 Next sync will be 2013/07/23 at 07:07" But only message has changed, the time is still + 3 minutes and didn't change after auto synchronization. After this I've clicked a button "Synchronize now" and this helped. Time is correct, but tomorrow time will be wrong again and I'll have click this button again. Why time is not changin while auto sync every 30 minutes? How to fix it?
In thinking about this, we need to first consider what is different about those systems which gain 3 minutes from those which do not. It is obvious to me that since the auto-sync is the problem and the manual sync works, it is not that the system isn't automatically syncing to the right server, but not really syncing at all....so therefore their must be something wrong with the auto-sync.
Given that I would suggest you read http://www.thewindowsclub.com/windows-time-service-not-working-synchronization-fails-error
which, while not specifically addressing your problem gives you several palaces to look and compare the working versus non-working systems.

You could try following steps:
Strange as it sounds, your systems' time must be
synchronized to the actual time. Although your cert's may be current, the time
is unsynchronized, & doesn't match the sites certificate parameters.
Right click the system tray time clock> Adjust time &
Date> Internet time> Update now. (Make sure your system is set to
'Automatic Synchronize...' while you're here)
Another possible fix:
With Internet Explorer, go to Microsoft Updates, then select
the 'Custom' button (not the 'Express'). That will tell you all specific
updates for your computer (hardware & software) and in this case the
and do rate the solution if got help
