The two programs in the attachment were not created by me. AppleTime.exe was created by Apple Inc. and is available for download as part of the BootCamp Beta Program. Servicemanager.exe was created by Aaron Ballman and is available free of charge from his website All I did was put them together and provide these instructions.
