I hope someone has a solution for this. A while back I installed Windows XP KB931836-x86-enu.exe which is the daylight savings time fix on a couple hundred workstations. I have one workstation that the time did not move forward an hour. The time zone under date and time properties is correct and automatically adjust clock for daylight saving changes is selected. Resetting the clock works until the next day, then it resets to an hour before the correct time. I tried reinstalling the update, but get the message that it’s already installed. I went to add/remove programs to try an uninstall and it’s not there! :eek: I went into the Windows folder looking to see if the uninstall file might be there, but it’s not.
Any suggestions?

Comp specs: Windows XP sp2, has all Windows updates

How about going into Date and Time Properties > Internet Time and uncheck 'Automatically synchronize with an internet time server'. That's probably how the clock is getting reset.

I should have said in my description, but it is unchecked....
Thanks for your reply! This is very frustrating. I truly don't want to image this pc just because the times an hour off :)
