Daylight Savings Time Problem


C

Several of the pc's at my office still show the incorrect time after the
daylight savings time change. I have checked all to ensure that the most
recent DST updates have been applied and they have. If I manually change
them, they revert back to the incorrect time within an hour. The only way to
keep them correct is by un-checking the "automatically adjust for daylight
savings" option. Again, this is only happening on select pc's - others are
just fine and as I said, all have the necessary DST updates from Microsoft.
Thanks.

Probably an idea you have already tried but, have you selected the proper
time zone?

I'll bet that if you wait three weeks till the previous Daylight Savings
Time change was in effect things will be just fine. I say that because I
have one program that does not know about or accept the 'new' time changes
but will revert when the previous date for the time changes gets here. Same
as the DVD player/video recorder conncted to my TV.

Yes. I'm in the central time zone and I've found that if I change the
setting to the mountain time zone, the time will adjust back one hour - thus
display correctly. But that's obviously not a fix, just a work-around that
will have to be altered come november.

I've also changed the time in the system BIOS but that does no good; it just
reverts back to the incorrect time ten seconds after start-up. Thanks.

A little utility called tzedit.exe from Microsoft allows changing the
DST start/stop dates in the clock utility.

Thanks for the reply. I discovered this update as well but when I try to
install it, it tells me that a newever version of this update is already
installed on the computer. As I said, all of the necessary updates
(KBxxxxxx) are installed on the computers. I've even gone so far as to
compare every update from my pc (which displays the correct time without a
problem) with the updates that are on the pc's that aren't working correctly
- and each of them have the same updates. So I can rule out a missing update
as the culprit. Very strange and very frustrating. Thanks.

I had the same problem (WinXP SP2) and Microsoft gave me no joy.

This program worked (it does not install itself). I uninstalled, then
installed - simple.
