Hey guys, I have a good friend who uses Vista, and she has a small problem. Her system tray clock is an hour behind. She corrects it every time she's on, and it stays until the machine is powered down / rebooted, at which point it reverts to being one hour behind.

As I still use XP and haven't experimented at all with Vista, I don't know where the appropriate options are that she needs to fix.

Would you mind helping out? :)
Thanks everyone.

She does that every time, in order to change the time so that it is correct. As I mentioned, it reverts back to the wrong time (an hour behind) every time she reboots. Is there a deeper menu within the option you just told me about, that she'd need to mess with?

Thanks for the reply.

Possibly she has not ticked off the option to "automatically adjust for Daylight saving time"
Click as suggested, then click "Change time zone". Now click "Automatically adjust-.. etc."

Open the clock menu on the task tray. Select Internet Time. Uncheck "synchronize with internet time server" and your clock will not revert back one hour.

Check to see what "Time Zone" setting is selected, she may have the wrong one selected?

Good suggestion but.....even if she chose the correct time zone, her PC would probably still revert back one hour; mine did so I just disabled the darn thing. Very annoying.
