    The date and time showing on your computer is no longer accurate. You reset the date and time but it happens again. The time appears to be slow, it is likely that your computer is syncing with a time server.

    To prevent it from changing, disable time syncing. Right-click the time and date display on the right side of the Windows taskbar and select "Adjust Date/.

    Explanation:

    The time on your clock keeps changing to the wrong time. The time on your clock keeps changing to the wrong time. If your time zone is correct you may have a bad CMOS battery but you can get around it by having the system sync more often with the internet time. If your CMOS battery is still good and your computer is only using seconds or minutes over long periods of time, then you could be dealing with poor synchronization settings. It provides power even when the computer is off and allows the CMOS to save all the settings You can expect the CMOS battery to last for up to five years. The more your computer is used, the longer the battery will last. If the battery goes bad, the chip starts losing information and one of the symptoms is that your Windows computer no longer maintains its time and date.
