The taskbar closk does not display seconds. This was actually a deliberate
design choice: http://blogs.msdn.com/oldnewthing/ar.../10/55256.aspx
The performance impact probably doesn't matter these days, when machines are
much more powerful. but the clock's Windows 95 design is still the same. I'd
guess Microsoft hasn't received numerous requests to display seconds. So
they just haven't bothered to change it.
If you are using the Vista Sidebar, several clock applets for the Sidebar
can display seconds. I use the "Sphere Timer" gadget: http://gallery.live.com/liveItemDeta...aae1724373&l=1
