    Default Computer Clock

    Hi
    I have a very peculiar problem. I had a Spyware problem about 3 months ago, and with your help I completely cleaned it and my computer is running well now. about a 3 weeks ago (at the start of a unusually cold winter here) my computer lost exactly 1 hour and 50 minutes. it remained same for few days and lost 13hrs and 50 minutes. (computer clock was behind). So I logged on to your computer help pages. and found a advise which said to leave the computer on for about a week to see if it stabiliess the clock. So I did that, after a week I swithed off the computer. Following day I found the computer clock has recovered lost ground and showing accurate time (I did not re-set the clock) I was surprised ? How did it recover exactly the lost time?
    It was ok untill today (for almost 2 week). But today I found that it has lost 1 hour and 50 minutes.
    Can you please help me to understand this? and tell me what to do
    Thanking you
