Default windows xp time synchronization

is it possible to alter how often windows xp synchronizes its time over the internet. my pc currently synchronizes weekly but for what ever reason my pc gains time at about 1min/day. is there a registry key i can change to make it syncronize daily.

i have reinstalled xp. changed cmos battery and recently upgraded my hard disk. a different psu has been tried but non of these have made any difference. must be a m/board fault but cannot afford to change it at this moment in time.

any help would be appreciated

Default Re: windows xp time synchronization

goto start>run>regedit.exe hit ok

local_machine>system>currentcontrolset>services>w3 2time>config

in the right pane double click updateinterval and select decimal and type in 51428 and hit ok

restart your computer

see if that works..make sure u back up ur registry first
