Windows 2000 professional does not take the time change. I used TZEdit to change the time zone dates and it still rolling back one hour. It's on a domain and I made sure that the server time is correct. I even used the net time command to sync with the domain.

Any ideas.

you also need to change the time zone to a different one, then change it back so the system re-reads the timezone database in the registry.

also be sure server not only has correct time but has correct dst , etc.

I was trying to give you a faster solution if you already did the tzedit, however just like rickhobbs suggested - here is another 3rd party free patch for Windows DST issues.

I used this on several machines, I think one thing is it only has North America DST2007 changes.
