    My Win XP time can go faster by itself. It can happend any time. All
    programs start working faster. Like I get double system speed. The
    only way to get speed back is cold reboot. BIOS time doesn't change. I
    wouldn't complain about faster computer :) but sound and keyboard work
    very bad.

    I think that started after I used partition magic to make another
    partition for win98.

    Any suggestions ?????

    any time.

    ***The only time I have seen this effect first hand it
    turned out to be a virus.***

    It may also be your Windows 98 install has changed
    some .dlls used by XP.

    I would run XP setup again using the original disk and re
    install service pack and all the fixes after this. Have
    them available before you start the reinstall. If it is a
    software problem, it will likely be fixed.

    The thing is that XP and 98 on a different partitions. XP doesn't see
    98 and 98 doesn't see XP.

    If I start XP I have to start bootmagic and switch it to XP and if I
    want to start 98 I have to switch it to 98 boot partition.

    Yes, I checked with norton antivirus online.

    The other thing that could cause the problem, I set up this time sync
    and then I didn't like it and took it of from registry using w32time
    registry entries from microsoft:
    I just changed "NtpServer" to blanc and "Type" to "NoSync".

    Anyway even if time will go faster for synchronization, how come whole
    computer is going faster???? And when time will go ahead for about
    10-15 minutes, it switches back to real time and then goes fast
    again!!!!! This is crazy...
