Although Windows generally has up-to date time, it sometimes can happen that the time is a bit wrong.

With the following commands you can set a new NTP server and sync with it for the first time (forced)

C:\>w32tm /config /manualpeerlist:nl.pool.ntp.org,0├Ś8, /syncfromflags:manual /update
C:\>w32tm /resync

If you want some information about repsonces from the NTP server you can use the following command.

C:\>w32tm /stripchart /computer:nl.pool.ntp.org /samples:5 /dataonly

For setting the time, make sure that you use an elevated command prompt window.
