    When i modify a file, e.g. a jpeg photo, the timestamp in 'My Computer' shows the time modified as being an hour ahead of the time it was actually modified. The time on my laptop is, and always has been correct, automatically updating for daylight saving, but 'My Computer' is incorrect.

    this was happening before the recent change in daylight saving, a few weeks ago it was roughly 50 minutes out, so I guess it seems to be gaining time?

    Can anyone assist? Many thanks.

    Compac presario c700, Windows XP, I am mostly computer illiterate, so please be gently with me!

    Additional: Just noticed that it is only on jpeg files that this happens, the Word doc I just amended has the correct time on it. Now I am really confused!
