Hi Larry,

Time synchronization is scheduled in the 'Task Manager' of Win 7.
Open 'Task Manager' and look for the item and edit it. Thanks for
bringing this to my attention as I just upgraded (?) to Win 7. I set
mine to sync at startup as I turn the PC off at night. My tracking
software (Nova) also does it when it is started. Also updates Keps.
