My computer clock is correct, however, my email in gmail time is incorrect. When I email it states a time of the email that is 3 hours off. It first states the time 3 hours of and says (2 hours ago) then after a minute says (3 hours ago). despite having been just sent. I have not done any changes with fingerprint as suggested in prior answers to similar questions. What can I do?? I have windows 10.

I went back into the computer settings and reset the clock again. Even though my time was correct on my computer and the gmail was noting the difference between what it was stating as the time and the computer time, something in my clock was off. I reset the clock on my computer to eastern and automatic and it worked again. I dont know how it got messed up in the first place, since the time had been correct (until it wasnt) but what ever I did finally worked. Thanks.
