My clock keeps changing...

The time on my computer keeps being bumped ahead about 30 minutes fast of the real time. WTF?

Any ideas? Only thing that I can think of that I've been running recently that I wasn't when this never happened is Azureus and I doubt that's doing it.

I'm gonna spyware/virus scan, but hopefully someone has an idea about what's going on.

Check the time set in your BIOS when the computer is set. Make sure that is correct.

Hitting the update time or whatever button contacts one of the time servers and correctly sets my time.

Didn't think about the BIOS, I'll check that. Although I though Windows adjusted the BIOS time...

If it is the BIOS and you change it there, and then it keeps changing, check that wonderful CMOS battery. May be going bad.

My Second laptop was normaly out by 10-20 years clock wise, one time it was out by 100 years. Oddly enough though, the clock was never wrong otherwise.
