[Problem] System Clock not updating

I installed Windows XP 64-bit SP2 on my Acer Timeline a bit over 2 days ago but the system clock is refusing to sync, I get an error: "An error occurred when Windows was synchronizing with time.windows.com."

I tested to do a sync on my other computers and it works fine.

I nLited out the games, Outlook Express, Fax service, Help & Support and Telnet from the install, but this I've done on all my installations so I have a hard time thinking this is the cause. My router is not showing anything odd in the logs either.

Anyone experienced or heard of this problem and wouldn't mind to help out ?

Thanks in advance.

Yes I have had this happen to me in both XP and Windows 7 in the past month...its strange, only happens somedays, not all the time and only with time.windows.com

Try changing the url to another and you should be able to sync
