SwItime is a program for keeping your computer clock set at the right time. It is mostly in German but it don't make any difference just click on Hole Uhrzeit von:(time server)to connect to the time server and once the time is retrieved click on Correct System Clock. There are several parameters that you can add to make the program do different things like -h to keep a window from opening, my favorite -b which is a batch to Get the time, set the time, stop working. All of the parameters are in the readme file.

The only problem I had was it wouldn't get the time from the default server so I did a search and found a public time server in my time zone and used the parameter -sSERVER to change it. The switch isn't permanent so you have to enter it every time or create a shortcut and go to the properties of the shortcut and put the -sServer after the quotation marks in the command line (don't forget to put a space between quote a switch and between switches). All in all a nice freeware program to keep you on time.
