Remove NetTime
Powered by Reason Antivirus


NetTime is a software program developed by Mark Griffiths. During setup, the program creates a startup registration point in Windows in order to automatically start when any user boots the PC. Upon being installed, the software adds a Windows Service which is designed to run continuously in the background. Manually stopping the service has been seen to cause the program to stop functing properly. It adds a background controller service that is set to automatically run. Delaying the start of this service is possible through the service manager. The primary executable is named NetTime.exe. The setup package generally installs about 4 files and is usually about 1.91 MB (2,006,415 bytes). Relative to the overall usage of users who have this installed on their PCs, most are running Windows 7 (SP1) and Windows 10. While about 51% of users of NetTime come from the United States, it is also popular in United Kingdom and Australia.

Assuming you get a legitimate copy from Mark Griffiths, this is not malicious software, does not install junk on your system (it's a very clean install, in fact), does not slow down your system, and performs a useful function, and does it well. It also has an uninstaller that works properly. Yes, Windows does come with a time synchronization service, but it's a genuine hassle to configure and monitor. NetTime accomplishes this task much easier while consuming negligible resources.
