Stop Clock Sync with host machine in Virtual PC

Hello everyone,
                        you might have noticed that whenever you change time in Virtual PC on a guest machine, it immediately synchronize it's time with the host machine, this can be very frustrated when you are working on an application which is time sensitive, like I had this problem when I was developing a Task Scheduler in C#

Anyways you can stop the clock synchronization between host machine and guest machine by following these steps

1. Open Virtual PC and start your guest Operating System

After it fully loads

2. Click on Start and than Click on Run and type services.msc

A window will pop-up listed all avalable services

3. Now here we have to find service

  •    Virtual Machine Additions Services Application
4. Right Click on the service and click on Stop

Note: You can also click on properties and set the startup type to Disabled, this way it will never starts at it's own, though you can manually start it later.

5. Close window

Now you can change the time in guest OS and this time it will not try to sync with the Host machine

I hope this for informative for you, And I would Like to thank you for reading
