    Atomic clock download works fine in XP 32 bit, always has.

    Atomic clock in Win 7 64 bit will not sync..........any workarounds?

    In the box with XP the clock will sync 50 seconds before the clock in 7.

    Surely there must be a way to get the computer clock in 7 64 bit to display the correct time.

    I just updated mine on Friday - here is what I did

    1. change the time server from to one of the nist time servers

    2. change the following registry key


    where the value is in seconds, so 3600 is hourly.

    The microsoft time server is the biggest culprit; on my systems it's off by at least 15 seconds consistently. Nist is in perfect alignment with IB's server time.
