Look in the download section there, and download their "Atomic Clock Sync" program. Free, unobtrusive and you'll never have to set the correct time again !!
I have all 3 options ticked under 'File' menu, and use the second 'time server' down (
I've used this program for years without any problems.

Actually, that was my original reason for visiting that site via someone's recommendation, as the time servers that Micrsoft uses hardly ever accept a connection! That's one of those widely known but never cured Microsoft bugs.

However, the downloaded software took a huge dislike to my PC - this was about a year ago now, so it may have been improved - but I stuck to checking it about once a month or so and that's fine really.

Actually, none of my current PCs suffer from any gain or loss of time anyway. My previous motherboard BIOS used to drop time.
