I have a crappy old system, and it's really slow.
I have a habit of often doing battery pulls, however this often requires me to edit my date and time settings.
Due to this, my Dropbox folder cannot sync.
So can anyone tell me a good Application/program which can automatically update my date and time settings on startup.
I don't mind if its online, because I have a steady Wi-Fi Connection

Battery pulls? What your cmos battery? Why and the hell should you have to do that? What do you think that is fixing?

Just use NTP, this is the standard tool for setting time across every OS out there. Here is a good site for windows port of it.

It's already built into the OS.. by default it runs once per week but you can just edit the job to run on startup instead.

What do you mean by CMOS battery?
And I know I shouldn't be pulling my battery, but I have a Toshiba Satellite U3150 with about 1gb ram, so my screen hangs a lot.

Where did you say you had a laptop? Didn't dawn on me you were talking about pulling battery on laptop.

And good reason for that... removing a laptop battery shouldn't cause the time to reset.

Maybe the CMOS battery should be removed and replaced then.
