An error occurred while Windows was synchronizing with time.windows.com

1. Most of the time you get the error is due to the time server being down, so try again later.

2. Try another Server. ( time.nist.gov )

3. Your firewall might be blocking W32Time, disable firewall, update time and enable again.

4. The following steps will stop and start the time update application.

Start > Run cmd.exe
net stop w32time
w32tm.exe /unregister
w32tm.exe /register
net start w32time
