    Anyone know of a Win 2000 app that will go out to the internet and synchronize the clock in the taskbar with the "mail" time keeping site?
    every week or so, my clock seems to be off by 35 minutes or so.
    i will change it back to the normal time, then after a week goes by, it will be off again.

    Windows 2000 has the same time-sync service that XP has, but it doesn't have a nice pretty user interface.

    Open a command prompt and type these commands:

    net stop w32time
    net time /setsntp:time-a.nist.gov
    net start w32time

    Then go to Start => Run and run "services.msc". Find the Windows Time service, edit its properties, and change its Startup setting to "Automatic".

    Make sure your computer's time setting is close to "real" time, then reboot.
