    I really wonder sometimes about how people view solving problems like this. Why Microsoft didn't just bump up the timeout by a little bit is beyond me.

    about timing it can be your ISP provider issues (i.e. bad internet connection on your side)
    but it's event ids 121 123 etc
    we discused 131 issue, somewhere on ms answers dicribed: it's appears when msserver redirect to other ms server url but it's blocked by ms in windows design;
    I have changed url and do reinstall of few old drivers in compadibility mode and cleanup hidden unused items from device manager and none of 131 few months... (see my prev post...)

    Hi everyone! I have managed to get rid of error 131 and the 200,201,202,203 warnings in Windows 10 without using the url change trick that everyone keeps talking about!! I have 2 computers at home which are now fixed! All I did was go into the time and date settings and changed the Internet time server from the default windows to the second one available called nist. Something (sorry I can't remember the exact name) anyways please try for your selfs and report back... =)

    I also went into control panel and hardware to try to reproduce error 131 and all is good!

    I have changed the time server and all is well. So now we have a further resolution - Thank you hborden727 for sharing this with us.
    Did you have any particular updates or changes on 10/2 when yours went away?

    I have not done anything and my metadata failed in Event Viewer seems to have gone away now with Windows 10.

    Thanks for keeping us updated:

    I have been running on the nist.gov time server for 24 hours with no errors - tonight I reverted back to the original url and windows time server and again, no errors.

    It would appear the issue 'may have' been fixed. I will keep an eye on it for the net few days. I am guessing this is very recent as I have been checking the url at least once a week and last week it was still producing event ID 131.

    Fingers crossed .......

    Hi guys and girls! So I did some more research on this error 131.. If i go back to the original windows time server the error is back... So the trick is to stay on the more reliable nist. Time server... Think about this for a second, every single pc sold comes with Windows. Time server as default so the server is going to be slower to react! So nist is the answer! You guys can and should switch back to the default url just in case you don't create an unknown issue further down the line and use the more reliable atomic nist server from the government =) ps:Amtino you are truly amazing, I have been watching you on here for a while and you are truly smart and amazing!
