[WIN7] Internet Time question

Somehow I removed all the default Windows time servers under the Internet time tab. How can I reset the default Internet Time settings just asif it were out of the box?

All I have is a ntp time server from Colorado Atomic time server.

But is a way to reset to the default settings the Internet Time ?

Thx

Well, I think the best thing to do would be to figure out what that time server is, and just put it back as it was.

So, I did a quick Google search, and came up with this page

»www.windowsnetworking.com/articl···-R2.html

On that page, is the picture that I posted above.

The time server that is listed is "time.windows.com".

If my memory is correct, that is what is setup by default in Windows 7.

Hope that helps.

I know for a fact that time.windows.com is the default.
But now I want to know if in Win7 is it enabled by default to synchronize?
So by default, is the checkbox ticked next to it or not?
Is the Internet Time setting enabled by default when installing Win7?

Just want the default settings back. Is thete someone that can post the actual default internet time registry settings?

Thx

Ok, got them back now.
But I cannot remember if Win7 has the Synch with Internet time checked or unchecked by default or not in the Internet Time tab.
Can anyone comfirm?

Thx

It is set to "automatically synchronize time on a scheduled basis" by default when you install Win 7.

Yes it is. That shows now. Because I enabled the time synchronization.

But my question is now, when after installing Win7 (out of the box), is the following checkbox enabled by default or not?
So in general, is that checkbox enabled or not by default when installing Win7?

I did not install Win7 now. All I want to know if that checkbox is enabled or not right after a fresh install of Win7.

Thanks

Thanks. Just to confirm that the checkbox is checked by default when one installes Win7? Am I correct?

As a matter of fact, time.windows.com does not work lately...Has anyone else had issues with this server?

I would recommend a different server. I happen to use a NTP pool server. You can simply type in the address of the server in the address box.

More info here...
