Windows keeps setting the time one hour back

Hello all!

I have a windows server 2003 running on a vmware esx 3.5i host. The problem is that windows keeps changing the time to something wrong: 1 hour back.
The hardware clock on the vmware-host is correct, and so is the time on vmware esxi. Also the "hardware-clock" on the virtual machine is correct. And in windows the time-zone is correct. Everytime I start the service "Windows time" it changes the time. So it must be syncing with something wrong?? If I leave the service stopped, there is no problem. But I want the server to be able to sync it's time.

What is going on here?

Did you apply the Windows Time Zone Updates?

Have you selected "Automatically adjust clock for daylight savings changes"?

No that is not selected.

I have had to reapply the the TZ patches on a couple of servers and on one had to run TZEdit to make it stick.
