there are lots of articles in the microsoft knowledge base about problems 
with the windows time service.  i recently did a clean reinstall of xp on 
two machines followed by sp2, and in both cases, the time service is not 
enabled to check any internet time servers.  since i am using the program i 
posted (the one by k5tr is probably better), i never noticed this until

you have that option.

I have found that these folks know something about what time it is:
