Yep. As far as I know, regular users do not have the right to change the
time. You need to have admin rights. (or at least power user, I'm not

What I do:

I use tardis K9 (http://www.kaska.demon.co.uk/) on workstations to listen
for ntp broadcasts from my pdc. K9 then corrects the time on the

Only don't forget to add K9 to your windows firewall exceptions.
