We have the same issue. The proble here is the O/S and the internet knows nothing about the early changes of DST hence no matter how many times you change the system time it goes back to previous time.

Workaround: Wait until the REAL DST kicks in then everything will sync.

It is probably set to change turn off DST the way it was before 2007.  There is a patch to fix this.

Hello narce100,

Make sure you have the required updates from Microsoft, depending on the configuration of your system.  Look at the tables half way down this webpate

Hope this helps!

On a workgroup setup, with no NTP in your network:
Make sure the client points to the right ntp server and your time zone accurate.
Check out this link for registry and your ntp server-
Test this out by stop and starting w32time services.

On a domain setup, with no NTP in your network:
Make sure the client points to the DC, with NT5DS configured.
The DC is higher stratum than client and DC points to NTP server.

I forgot what the default ntp server is, because I erase all of this and configured my own stratum servers. But if I can remember, it is "".
Also, patch your computer. I know there's some time zone update/patches available from MS.
