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?

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

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.
