Hi Dania,

I think you have to use ntp syncronization.  By default windows xp 
should update the time from the DC server at login,  but if you need 
further time updates you should read the section  "Configuring the 
Windows Time service to use an external time source" at the following link:


If someone doesn't have a better idea I hope this help you.

Best regards,
