Updating windows time

If your computer is a member of a domain, your computer clock is probably synchronized automatically by a network time server If your computer is not a member of a domain, your computer's clock is automatically and regularly synchronized by an Internet time server.

Any of Microsoft's operating systems could experience freezing issues during Windows updates including Windows 10, Windows 8, Windows 7, Windows Vista, Windows XP, and more.

Windows has a built-in "service" that allows your computer to reference an 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.

Time Required: Changing how Windows updates are downloaded and installed should only take you a few minutes at most.
