    This post is my first. I noticed when I used Windows Media Center in Win7 that WMC was recording tv shows at the wrong time. It was five minutes ahead of the correct time. Next, I saw that the clock on my desktop was five minutes fast.

    What could have caused my clock to be five minutes fast?

    I did a search in the Win7 forum and found some posts. Unfortunately, the regedit is beyond my skills. Is there any way to set the automatic time?

    You don't need to edit the registry. Just right click on the time in the lower right corner and select "Adjust..." it to the correct time.

    Just do as suggested but click on the "Internet Time" tab. This should give the name of a working Simple Network Time Protocol (SNTP) time server on the internet. This function by default synchronises the PC time with the SNTP server every week, but you can set it to synchronise more often if you want (registry edit, though).

    You can use pool.ntp.org as the sync source (NTP server). Prepend your country for best accuracy, e.g. uk.pool.ntp.org.
    Details on http://www.ntp.org

    cheers, Paul
