Windows clock date day jump strange problem

  lemon2 19:31 12 Oct 2004

I keep noticing periodically, (about once a week), that when I'm online the date in the windows clock is 24 hours ahead. i.e., this morning it was showing the date as 13/10/04. I manually correct it with "adjust date/time", but a week later, it's jumped ahead again.

This only occurs when I'm online, and when my firewall is set to block. It does not occur if I'm not online.

The clock is synchronised every 24 hours, and doesn't seem to gain time in itself, only the date gains a day. (Compared to my Oregon Scientific Radio controlled clock). Normal windows time gain problems seem to be the time gaining and not the date.

Anyone else experienced this, and knows why it's occuring?

My first thought is that the battery on the motherboard may require changing.

Thanks, I'll try replacing the mobo battery. I had wondered about the mobo battery but then dismissed it, as only the date was wrong.
