You may have heard about an issue with Windows Secure Time Seeding that's recently been affecting Windows users across the globe.

Although meant to be helpful, problems with Windows STS have been causing the time on Windows systems to spontaneously change to incorrect times for users worldwide. This wreaked havoc on time-based operations as systems were reading time stamps out of order and acting at the wrong times.
Another recent post teaches you how to suppress alerts from selected devices and drives with the System Health Event Monitor. This is important because certain devices are constantly above the thresholds you set no matter what, like a SQL Server database that purposely consumes 100% of available memory. Suppressing alerting for these conditions is key to ensuring that only the most urgent alerts are sent to you and your team.
