TimeSync v2.31

guinness on 2 May 2013

TimeSync gets the current time from a NIST server, and adjusts the PC clock if necessary. It will try alternative servers in case the time cannot be obtained from the first server. You can use the "/auto" parameter to run TimeSync so that it will automatically synchronize the time without user action.

Emsisoft Anti-malware scan found DealHelper.com malware... which is strange because I've been using it for years. Anyone?

In my eternal quest for optimization I (accidentally) removed NTP support from my XP installation through nLite, so this program is very useful to restore lost functionality at a small footprint :)

As a couple of others have stated, this utility is completely unnecessary for Windows XP, Vista and Win7 because they already have time synchronizers built in. Other than for a school assignment for 'Intro to Programming 101,' I have no idea why someone would waste their time writing it.

NETTIME v1.0

Andrew Lee on 12 Feb 2013

NETTIME communicates with "Time Servers" over the Internet using UDP protocol. Those servers are available in many countries throughout the world. They send accurate date/time information, which is kept correct according to observatory/GPS data.

The INI-file of NETTIME contains more than 100 predefined time servers. New servers may be added or existing can be modified by editing the INI-file. Up-to-date time servers can be obtained from here. NETTIME tries to connect to each of these servers until it reads the date/time information and then asks you to correct your PC's clock (automatic correction can also be selected).

I like Nettime because it installed as a service which updates the system time when you boot up your computer. Wonderful.

Damnn; great prog but it does not switch correctly with european summer-time (whitch started some days ago in germany!)
Does anybody know an alternative which works from commandline (automatic and hidden, in background)?

Neutron v1.07

Checker on 5 Aug 2014

Neutron is small time synchronizing program that retrieves the accurate time from one of several specialized time servers on the Internet using the standard Time protocol (TCP or UDP port 37). Once the network time has been retrieved the program can synchronize your computer's clock to match it.

  • Added a message box warning for Vista users if the time couldn't be synchronized due to lack of rights to change the time.

Great program. Place shortcut in startup folder. Check the box "exit after time has been synced". Its quick and fast no extra time on boot up.

tonecool on 2008-12-30 16:12

Confirmed, Neutron doesn't write anything to the registry and very good program btw

Webfork on 2009-12-21 17:12

Great program and very useful. The comment left by "just_someone" to check the time and exit works beautifully. Saves me a lot of trouble with multiple machines I work on that are off by a few minutes or hours.
