These two files solved my clock problems on an AT. One routine fixed
the problem of the date not advancing at midnight, and the other fixes a
bug introduced by the first(?), namely, not reading the CMOS clock when
the system is booted up.

Put CLOCKF.SYS in whatever directory you keep your drivers, e.g.
C:\DRIVERS, and include the following in your CONFIG.SYS:

DEVICE=C:\DRIVERS\CLOCKF.SYS

Put SETCLK.COM in a directory in your executable path, and execute
SETCLK within your AUTOEXEC.BAT.

I grabbed these files quite a few months ago and suspect that only the
older AT systems are affected by the clock problems as I don't hear too
many requests for the solution anymore. I'm sorry I didn't keep all the
appropriate credits for these files, so there are two unrecognized
developers out there that have donated their efforts to these solutions.

  1. Very nice! Thank you for this wonderful archive. I wonder why I found it only now. Long live the BBS file archives!

  2. This is so awesome! 😀 I’d be cool if you could download an entire archive of this at once, though.

  3. But one thing that puzzles me is the “mtswslnkmcjklsdlsbdmMICROSOFT” string. There is an article about it here. It is definitely worth a read: http://www.os2museum.com/wp/mtswslnk/
