On a Windows XP-based computer, the Internet Time tab does not appear in the Date and Time tool in Control Panel.
This behavior occurs because the Windows XP-based computer is a member of a domain. The Internet Time feature is only available in workgroup environments.
To resolve this behavior, synchronize the computer's time with time sources that are available in its domain.
