The time clock on my Win 98 desktop has been losing some time lately. The machine boots up and runs perfectly. Do some games and programs suspend time? I have recently installed and have been playing a Nascar game. Thank You.

I also have been seeing that problem on my 'older ' machine...I've noticed if I leave IE running, that I lose about 1 hour a day on the clock.
I'm running win98se and IE5.5..

Not sure what causes the time loss problem. But if you go to http://www.worldtimeserver.com/ and click on atomic clock sync in the upper left of page. There's a free download there that will help keep your clock up to date
I hope this will help Regards, Chris

The CMOS battery may be weak. Larry

Actually, I did some checking and came up with this:
If you have Norton AntiVirus installed, there was a Bug in Norton 2000 and Win98, run ' Live Update'
head to Microsoft's Support "Knowledge Base " and read article ' Q189706 '

MSKB Q189706 is something I have not seen before. Thanks for the pointer. So, what, if anything, fixed the problem? Larry

I don't know Larry, the only thing I can figure is the game. When I first put it in, I could not get the keyboard to function with it, so, I gave up for then. Next time I turned the set on and accessed the game, everything worked. The clock is working ok too! Damnifino!
