My computer has Windows 8 with Deep Freeze installed. I changed the date/time settings to be accurate, but the time soon changed back on its own (to an incorrect time). I then turned off the computer, changed the time settings, saved them, and started again. After a while, it got set back one hour.

How can I set my time so that it won't fluctuate?

You will need to perform the following steps:

  • Unfreeze the system
  • Change the system time
  • Freeze the system

If you are not an Administrator on the system or network, then you will have to get one involved so this can be changed.

If you are installing the software for the first time and want to always be able to adjust the system time, use the following command line options:

DFStd.exe /Install /PW=<password> /AllowTimeChange /Freeze=<comma separated drive letters>

This will allow any use to change the system time, even when the software is in the "frozen" state.


when your computer starts up press F2, then you c an see there the time and date. press F5 for decrease and press F6 for increase. then save it.

    Is this specific to a particular model of computer? Aug 21, 2021 at 15:50

You can do what @Ramhound suggested or you can simply change the date and time settings from BIOS.
