I'm having a problem with a user's workstation.Windows XP SP3 and joined to a Domain
User called in because Time Zone was set incorrectly to Eastern time - user is in Chicago, Home Office is in NJ.
I remoted into the user's machine and successfully changed the time zone under the local admin account; however, the user's time in the system tray did not change
After digging a bit I discovered the Windows Time service was not started. When I attempt to start it I receive
System Error 126 has Occurred.
The Specified module could not be foundI verified that the w32time.dll file was in the System32 folderI tried un-registering and re-registering the DLL fileI tried un-registering and re-registering the Windows Time ServiceI tried replacing the DLL with a copy from an XP SP3 install discI tried replacing the DLL with a copy from a working PCI tried replacing the registry entries for the service with the entries from a working PCI checked to make sure there are no spaces in the TYPE key: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/959113I still receive the system error 126 and the time will not update.Please help.
try to compare the value of the registry keys: [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\W32Time] from a working XP SP3 machine to the pc having problem.
check if you find anything that is different.
Every second counts..make use of it.
Why don't you right click your W32Time registry hive, export it to a .reg file on your desktop, open the file with something like notepad, select all the text, copy all the selected text to the Windows clipboard and paste it back here and then somebody can take a look at it and maybe spot something amiss.
