Essentially you need to create a scheduled task that runs

W32tm.exe /resync

As often as you deem necessary (I have chosen hourly).

Here is an exported scheduled task that you can use:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-16"?>
<Task version="1.3" xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/windows/2004/02/mit/task">
  <RegistrationInfo>

  <Triggers>
    <CalendarTrigger>
      <Repetition>
        <Interval>PT1H</Interval>
