If I want to change the clock an hr ahead or backwards, the computer automatically changes it back to the right time. Tried googling an answer to figure out how to fix it but I can't find anything. Can anyone help? I'm not trying to change the date, just the time.

Start => Run => "net stop w32time".

Once you're done doing whatever depravity you're doing...

Start => Run => "net start w32time".

Trying to play a game that only allows you to play at certain times. Tried what you said, it doesn't work.

How about changing the time zone setting to match the time offset you desire?

you need to disable Windows time service
try changing system time from the bios

Changing the system time in bios works. I was messing with it and the time kept changing backwards when I changed the month. The game is called hotel626. Its a online game that only allows you to play from 6pm to 6am. You can trick the game into playing as long as you change your system clock. Changing the time in bios every time I want to play during the day seems like a pain in the ass.

Then something is re-enabling the time correction, and I can't help you anymore.

What you said is correct. Some program I'm running is blocking me from changing the time. I rebooted and went in safe mode and was able to change my time without it automatically correcting it. Can't figure out what it seems to be though.

Just take the battery out of your mother board, you will never have to worry about the time again. :mamoru:

That's some awesome Winnie The Pooh logic there. Do you happen to know why they only want you to play in the evening?

From a quick google search

"You can only enter Hotel 626 from 6 p.m. to 6 a.m., hence the name '626' (though you can change your computer’s clock if you want to cheat the system), and you’re not allowed to exit until you’ve gone on a harrowing journey through the demonized hotel. I’m not sure how running down dark hallways, fighting ghosts, and playing creepy lullabies will “enhance your Doritos eating experience,” but it was entertaining."

Oh god. They make you play at night for the ambiance? Why don't they just package it with a bag of weed and some rolling papers?
