Default Urrghh, synching time on windows..

Just got vista 64 bit and I can't sync the time.

I remember i fixed this before, but can't remember how. Do I need to mess with BIOS or something?

EDIT: I get the error about there being a security flaw or something

Id say the install was botched.
Happens a lot with vista 64.

IDK I'm a linux user.
I'd reinstall and see if it helps.

A reinstall is a radical approach to a simple problem.

Make sure your firewall or anti-virus aren't blocking it.

Here's a good read: How to Use Internet Time Synchronization in Vista

I know in XP you can change the server in which it synchs from. Perhaps Vista has the same?
