    make watch fast/slow

    Need to know if the below statement is correct:

    1)If you make the PC clock 10 minutes slow, the application will open properly.
    2)If you make the PC clock 10 minutes fast, the application will open properly.

    I always set my watch five minutes fast to make sure I'm not late.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    The two statements are contradictory, so they can't both be correct. Are you talking about Overclocking - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia ?
