A mere seven years late, ...and counting....;-)

The 161 files included in the "tclocklight-040702-3.zip" package are mostly source modules kindly provided by the developer for the benefit of DIY hackers.

For basic execution, only the following files are required:

• TCLOCK .EXE 44544 09/07/2004 17:16 A--- tclock.exe
• TCLOCK .INI 1024 10/20/2016 15:09 A--- tclock.ini
• TCDLL~1 .TCL 48128 09/07/2004 17:16 A--- tcdll.tclock
• TCLANG .TXT 8234 06/10/2004 11:58 A--- tclang.txt
• TCMENU .TXT 477 05/09/2004 21:53 A--- tcmenu.txt

All the same, a nifty, teensy configurable clock utility, sitting pretty in WinXP system tray...;-)

IMHO, given the amount of fixes and updates and the fact that it retained portability, this entry should be updated to point to T-Clock Redux (Beta)...

TimeSync v2.33

billon on 8 Sep 2016
  • 104KB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 7 Sep 2016
  • Suggested by Andrew Lee

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 :)

shodan816 on 2012-08-09 12:28

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

webfork on 22 Mar 2016

NETTIME communicates with time servers over the Internet, used in many countries for accurate date/time information, kept correct according to observatory/GPS data. The program tries to connect to each of these servers until it finds the date/time information and then asks you to correct your clock (automatic correction available).

NETTIME contains more than 100 predefined time servers and servers may be added or modified by editing the INI-file. An up-to-date server list is available.

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

drWimpy on 2011-03-30 23:08

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

smaragdus on 21 Mar 2017
  • 14KB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 23 Jun 2008
  • Suggested by Barrette

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.
