Win 7/8 poll the time.window.com server via the internet for the correct time. No other software in needed.

If you want a bit more than simple NTP sync you can always try WorldTime:

I use Atomic Time. Aside from syncing time, it allows me to define the time server I want and it keeps a graphical history of the adjustments it makes.
