Most Windows computers are hooked up to the Internet in some manner these days. If your computer is among this majority, you can instruct Windows to check periodically with online time servers to adjust the system clock on your computer. Here's how you specify which time server to use with Windows 7 and 8:

My computer's internal clock is reading incorrect. The calendar doesn't change. I have to reset the time 4 or 5 times a day otherwise the computer doesn't download my emails that came through after the time it is displaying. Can I fix this?
Hooray Windows appears to have fixed in the "Fall" (Crazy term when a worldwide service, selling to the Southern hemisphere) update. I have a never been able to update automatically the time and my clock runs fast so have had to manually alter.
I am running Windows 7 Pro on a network and mine does not show the options you mention above.
