    I check the time with the Official U S Time clock. My PC runs slow for
    some reason. Why is that? Is there something I can do?

    PC clocks should be good to a few seconds per week But, if you turn your pc
    off (and dependinig on your pc's age), if the battery on the mother board is
    flat, the clock will slow down or even go compleatly haywire. Motherboard
    batteries need to be replaced every 2 or 3 years.
    Otherwise, do as others have suggested and get a clock sync program. I use
    "Atomic Clock"

    Is the clock losing time whilst the computer is running?
    If so, you have something installed that is interfering
    with the system clock - Norton products are a prime
    candidate.

    If it happens when the computer is powered off, you
    need a new CMOS battery.

    The clocks in computers are basically very poor in design or construction or
    both. Get a program that will set your clock for you in a matter of 30
    seconds or so. I use one called Web Time. You should be able to find it on
    intrnet. Have a go.
