Virtual system time is ‘way off, by tens of seconds.

The same problem appears sometimes with VMware.

The obvious solution:
1. Install and configure ntp in your guest. This should fix the drift after startup. 2. Configure your windows to use a time server. You can do this with windows itself or you can use ntp for windows. For example:


NTP timeservers are provided by nearly each university and some big companys. Take a look at http://support.ntp.org/bin/view/Servers/WebHome.
