When trying to login to Windows and you receive the error “The current time on this computer and the current time on the network are different. For more information about Date/Time Properties, see Help and Support. To log on, contact your system administrator.”


  1. Get the user to unplug their network cable and then log into the system
  2. They will then be logged in with cached credentials.
  3. Once logged in, plug the cable back in, and get them to restart the pc.
  4. This should reset the time.

  • If this fails - repeat the process again - but this time get them to change the date to the current date when logged in and before the cable is plugged in.
