    I am really trying to understand the question. Can you rephase it or give me an example?

    When Windows automatically adjusts for daylight savings time, the times on files on Windows NT file system (NTFS) partitions and the events in the event logs are retroactively shifted by one hour, even though the files and event records were created before the daylight savings time change.

    NOTE: To configure Windows to automatically adjust for daylight savings time, run Control Panel, choose Date/Time, and select "Automatically Adjust for Daylight Saving Time."

    Here is an article about the Daylight Savings Time bug:

    Hi  & thanks for your reply.

    i guess what i am trying to ask is if i go to command prompt is there a way i can see what day the computer thinks daylight savings ends


    c:\> computer thinks daylight savings ends when?
    daylight savings ends 27/03/06 0300 VIC/AU

    I hope that makes a bit more sense.
