It is noon time on the east coast in Philadelphia, pa. I have the Eastern Time (US & Canada) selected. yet the clock displays 3 PM, a full 3 hours ahead. What setting is incorrect and causing it to think it is in the wrong time zone?
The operating system is Windows 7 Pro. The computer is part of a Donmain (The domain is in the same building).
thanks,
pat

Check with the domain manager, most likely your clock is getting an update from the domain

do you have a dual boot windows / Linux ? I had a similar problem with my clock and it was because of the linux put my clock in UTC and windows assumed that the clock was in GMT

If you do not have a dual boot I would check the BIOS date/time settings first

I am the domain admin. I installed a new server yesterday. I set the time but must have missed the Time Zone on the server. It was set to pacific time. I changed to Eastern and all is well.
