    monitoring system clock in Windows

    hi there
    how can i monitor the system clock in windows for changes, either through the GUI or the command line using the "time" command? I suppose i need to turn on auditing, but which event ID should i look at? thanks

    Why do you want to monitor the clock? Non-admin users cannot change it and if you setup a timeserver it'll stay in sync..

    SirDice is right, the SE_SYSTEMTIME_NAME privilege in windows is disabled by default for most users. But I'm guessing that if you check out more about how the time in windows is controled you could come up with a solution.

    Here are some pages that may help you get started. (this is for windows)

    Access Control

    "Do you know why the system is slow?" they ask

    "It's probably something to do with..." I look up today's excuse ".. clock speed"
