[SC] Start Service FAILED 1058: The service cannot be started because it is disabled or because it has no enabled devices associated with it.
Access denied errors when unregistering the time service are often false errors that leave the service in a zombie state until the system is restarted. the latest Windows update "2014 time zone update for Russia ".... It it necessary for those of us who live in the US to install this update?
'w32tm /register' worked OK 'net start w32time' produced System error 1290 has occurred. T EDIT: The Windows Time service now seems to be running. I have become very cautious about installing Windows updates since the problems the the early August... It all started couple of days ago when I wansn't able to start my Skype, because at the login window Skype uses Internet Explorer:( I've been trying couple of days to do something.
It is frequently wrong by a few seconds towards the end of the week, so I did some investigations and I set up a daily schedule task for the following actions using the instructions here Make Windows synchronize time more often %windir%\system32\start w32time task_started %windir%\system32\w32/resync I set it to run daily, but noticed the it wasn't updating my clock. Didn't update clock, but Windows Date and Time window~Internet Time says that thesynchronisation was successful at either my sheduled time or whatever time I run the shedule task manually, but the clock is still wrong.
Incidentally, I have the same sheduled task running on my W7 32 bit machine and it works OK.
during further investigation, I read the following here.
Windows 7 Time Synchronization I tried that and got the following messages (msg.) At the elevated command prompt (with administrator privileges), type the following command 1. Type "w32tm /unregister" and press 'Enter' (without using the first command the second did not work! Type "w32tm /register" and press 'Enter' you should get the response "W32Time successfully registered" msg.Type "w32tm /debug /disable" and press 'Enter' (net stop w32time gave an Error 5 Access denied response! Sending disable private log command to local computer... ) you should get the response " W32Time successfully unregistered" msg. The following error occurred: The specific has been marked for deletion. Type "net start w32time" and press 'Enter' you should get the response "The windows Time Service is starting.The windows time service was started successfully" msg.If you find that your offset is seconds or more, you might want to change the timeservers you use or perhaps change the values used on pacemaker to use more energy and CPU but have a clock closer to the true time in exchange for the settings Apple has shipped with 10.9.If you go to can see the official time (up to the second) and use that to verify if your system time is correct or not.So has command 1 borked it, and how can Ire-enable it?
