    Time Update service stopped and cannot restart

    Was wondering if anyone had come across this one before, i have a windows XP machine with service pack 2 installed, norton a-v 2005 using windows firewall and microsoft anti-spyware (Giant Anti-spyware).

    The Windows update Time Service has stopped, when i start the update service it stops again almost instantly, i have tried disabled all anti-spyware and virus and firewall products but still does the same, there is no virus or spyware apparent on the pc.

    any help would be gratefull.


    Thanks

    Look in event viewer and you should find some kind of error telling you why it failed to start.
    I'm using Windows 7 - you got a problem with that?
