Set the Time zone with a script or GPO

I have many computers in the domain that don't have clock settings the same some of them are one hour difference because of the time zone which is set up different.
I need a script or if there is a GPO that can set all computers to the correct time and same time zone.

Thanks

This script works just perfect it retrieves the clock time, but for only one computer how do I modify it to retrieve the time of many computers, if you can tweek it to show the zone will be more than perfect.


strComputer = "."

Set objWMIService = GetObject("winmgmts:\\" & strComputer & "\root\cimv2")

Set colItems = objWMIService.ExecQuery("Select * From Win32_OperatingSystem")
 
For Each objItem in colItems
    strTime = objItem.LocalDateTime
    dtmTime = CDate(Mid (strTime, 9, 2) & ":" & Mid(strTime, 11, 2) & ":" & _
        Mid(strTime, 13, 2))
    dtmTime = CDate(dtmTime)
    Wscript.Echo FormatDateTime(dtmTime, vbFormatLongTime)
Next
