Windows 10 help, please?
The clock on my Windows 10 PC stops. I have had it about a month now and it has done it twice. When it happens, I have to pull the power cord out of the power strip to restart it, because when I click the "start button" to shut it down, I get the perpetual "busy circle."
Anyone else experiencing this?

Two days later I bought my first laptop...

4. This might be of interest to you...
Also, make sure your pc has the latest firmware for the motherboard installed.
If you're interested in troubleshooting the issue you could compare the system time against what the bios thinks.
And in the end you should configure the windows time service to sync itself with an internet time service.

8. This is the best option.
I run a little service that regularly syncs with an atomic clock In a client/domain arrangement put the sync on the server and sync the clients with the server. You can avoid all sorts of Kerberos issues that way.
