Have a code in C for stopwatch design but have a few problems

URGENT HELP REQUIRED PLZ!

Dear Guys,

The code I have (plz find below) gives me an aprox extra of one second when I press the stop button. eg instead of 0025 it'll display 0125 or. Always an etrxa second added.

Also how do I alter it so that I have the displayed time
"sec" "mili" "mili" "mili" instead of present "sec" "sec" "mili" "mili"

The time is not accurate. It lags when compared to a regular stopwatch.

I need this to be as accurate as possible.

Your time and help is greatly appreciated.

Best regards.
