How old is this computer?  It sounds like the battery backup for your 
BIOS is about to expire and causing your system clock to lose time.  
It's an easy fix if this is a desktop pc as the battery is on the 
motherboard.  The typical battery is about the size of a US Nickel and 
is a CR2032 available at most places that sell watch batteries.  If this 
is the problem you need to do this soon as it can scramble your BIOS up 
so bad that the pc won't even boot.  Do not remove the battery for more 
than 5 minutes as this too could cause you to lose your BIOS settings.
