AtomTime Pro is a Windows application which will connect to an atomic clock time server via the Internet and fetch the current atomic clock time value. It can then set your PC clock to the correct time.
AtomTime Pro is the latest sequel to the very popular AtomTime98 and AtomTime95. It works on Windows 95, Windows 98, and Windows ME, along with Windows NT 4.0, Windows 2000 and Windows XP. A partial list of the new features in AtomTime Pro include:
