The windows time servers stopped updating for me too. First off you need your clock to be set somewhere around the correct time and date. Second off if microsoft doesnt work, use an alternative time server like time.apple.com

Make sure you have the two RPC services in the picture enabled. To do this, hit start > type run > services.msc
