    Just uprgraded to Windows 7 Ultimate with no problems at all...
    ...apart from that when I load 'Chrome Bird' (a twitter app for Chrome), all the posts are 8 hours out e.g. a post that has just been made says it was posted 8 hours ago. The problem has gone onto my iPhone aswell, as now my facebook and twitter apps do the same with the 8 hour time difference!

    I know it may seem trivial, but any help would be much appreciated!

    Thanks, Adam

    All I can think of is be sure your time settings and location haven't changed on your pc.

    I know windows 7 can show multiple time zones at the same time - a neighbour of mine, who i'm "helping" has two time zones when he clicks on the clock in the system bar - I wonder if thats active on your PC and picking the wrong time

    have a read here about iphone showing incorrect time after syncing although the PC clock is correct

    Solved it!

    The time on my PC was correct but was set to -8 Hours at the same time, so i just changed it back to normal. I didn't look at this straight as I saw it showing the right time, therefore presumed it was the correct time zone.


    Thanks for your help!
