If you need to run this every time the computer boots, press the Windows key + R, type shell:startup. Then you can create a shortcut. Enter the shortcut's Properties, click Advanced, and select Run as administrator.

The clock was months off on my old computer, so Windows wouldn't update the time. This can be fixed by invoking w32tm /resync /force . Will you consider updating the script, @thedom85?

@kristianrl I added this command "w32tm /resync /force /rediscover" at the end
