Windows Time Error – An error occurred while Windows was synchronizing with

December 17, 2013Omar Nofl1 Comment

Is your Windows time isn’t correct and whenever you try to update it you get this message:

An error occurred while Windows was synchronizing with time.windows.com

Here’s the answer

At the elevated command prompt (with administrator privileges), type the following command

1. Type “w32tm /debug /disable” and press ‘Enter’ (net stop w32time gave an Error 5 Access denied response!)

2. Type “w32tm /unregister” and press ‘Enter’ (without using the first command the second did not work!)

you should get the response ” W32Time successfully unregistered”

3. Type “w32tm /register” and press ‘Enter’

you should get the response “W32Time successfully registered”

4. Type “net start w32time” and press ‘Enter’

you should get the response “The windows Time Service is starting. The windows time service was started successfully”

This ensured my Internet Time synchronization started working again.
