check the time zone and daylight saving setting on the 98 box.

also, when you say "it goes back to same", do you mean 98 box cannot keep the daylight saving check box setting or the time jump back one hour?

Hi cakirfatih,

The windows 98 clients are part of the Windows 2000 domain and upon logon to the domain, they maybe getting the time set back by the Windows 2000 time service.

I would check the time service on the server, the links below explain what it is.;EN-US;216734;en-us;224799&Product=win2000
