I would suggest you have a Time Zone issue.  If the workstation's time zone is correct, check the domain controller that is also your FSMO Master PDC Emulator.
I have a computer at home that wants to jump forward an hour. Could never resolve the issue. So, I set the time zone to a zone that is one hour behind mine. The clock jumped forward one hour and has been on the right time ever since.

did you install the time change patch MS put out.  The time change this year was diffenent than that of previous years.

time zone patch doesn't make sense in this instance.  time zone patch was to update computers so they knew the change happened earlier this year.  however, we are already in the timeframe for the old time change... if the computer did not have the time zone patch, it should still have sprung forward an hour because we are within the dates of time change for previous years.

also, since computer is on the domain, it should be getting time from the DC, regardless.  DC should be forcing computer to the correct time (assuming nothing has been done to change the default time control mechanism in a domain)....

is there anything in the Event log regarding time?
also, perhaps the command in this article will force client to sync time: http://technet2.microsoft.com/windowsserver/en/library/8990703a-a197-4717-b6e5-b7406d9f91f01033.mspx?mfr=true
