    I added time update permisssion to my limited user acct. but it does
    not work.
    When I try, the time synchonization is greyed out.

    Thanks.

    Is this Windows MCE SP2?

    What method did you use to add time update permission to your limited
    user account?

    Does your unlimited user account work as desired?

    There is a time synchronization Help and Support feature - is that
    what you mean?

    Do you mean the whole Internet Time tab is greyed out and accessible,
    the Update Now button is greyed out, etc.

    Unable to visualize with the information provided so far.

    Using local security settings, I added Change System Time to the
    limited user.

    I will just pretend you are talking about XP Pro SP3.

    Limited user accounts cannot change the time.

    If you adjust the Local Security Policy and add that Limited user to
    the Change the system time policy, they can change the time, but the
    Internet Time tab of the Data and Time Properties dialog box are
    unavailable (greyed out).

    That is they way it works, but I believe there are some third party
    programs to mimic the XP Internet Settings sync function so you could
    install one of them and give your limited user the ability to run it
    and it includes a time sync option. XP won't let you, but this other
    program might.

    Never tried it and can't experiment right now, but here is one I read
    about from a Google search:

    http://www.filebuzz.com/fileinfo/31814/FG_Time_Sync.html

    The account is called Limited for a reason.
