Will My Windows 7 run Old Windows XP Programs?

Yes it is possible. Due to continuous complaints about Vista’s compatibility problems, Microsoft is introducing something called XP Mode, which creates a virtual, or “shadow” Windows XP operating system running inside Windows 7.
      Once XP Mode is running, it fools your older apps into thinking they’re on Windows XP. Here you’ll find an XP start menu and all your familiar XP features — all of which should work as they did before. XP Mode is only available in the higher-priced Professional and Ultimate editions only.

How to Synchronize Time of Client Computers with The Domain?

You might need to manually synchronize the time of a client computer within a domain. Note that this need should be the exception rather than the rule; Windows 2000 (Win2K) and later computers in a domain should automatically synchronize time with a domain controller.
     Manually synchronizing the time will not resolve the underlying time sync issue, but might temporarily resolve any other problems that arise from a lack of proper time sync (such as user and computer logon issues).
To manually synchronize time, open a command-line window, and run

net stop w32time


w32time –update


net start w32time

Manually verify the synchronization between the client computer and a domain controller. Also check the System event log to ensure that the W32Time service has not logged additional error messages.
Or else you can type this command in CMD:
W32tm /resync
