Freeware Time Clients to Look AT

Keeping your computer clock accurate is important. You can keep it current by looking at your watch and setting your computer clock to that; but realistically that is not a good solution. A better one involves synchronizing your PC clock to the atomic clock server, such as the atomic clock servers operated by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) in the United States. Your current computer time is compared with the current atomic time and an adjustment is made to keep your local computer up-to-date with the exact time now.

This program will access an atomic clock server to get the current time with the accuracy available and update your PC’s information. It can even be set to automatically check the time once a day to keep your PC’s time accurate forever.
