I have a strange issue with a winxp/sp3 machine. After the DST change this past weekend.  It still shows time as one hour behind. If I update the correct time on it an hour later it reverts back. Outlook emails still show one hour behind also.
I have check the BIOS and they are set to correct time. Email server as well, this is the only system with this issue in my network.
Any ideas?

This is supposed to be applied in SP3 but does not always get applied.  This should fix your problems.

Outlook also has its own time zone settings which may need to be adjusted to correct this issue.


Go to "Tools" at the top of the main screen, then scroll down to "Options." The pop-up window should open to the "Preferences" tab.

Pick "Calendar Options" from the "Preferences" tab and adjust the settings under this option, if necessary.

Stay on the "Calendar Options" window, and go to "Advanced Options" at the bottom. Click on "Time Zone." A new pop-up window appears for setting the time zone.

Enter a label for the time zone, such as "Work" or "Meeting." Pick from an endless list of time zones from the drop-down menu, whether it's Eastern Standard Time, Pacific Time, Greenland Time or Cairo Time depending where you live. The current time should already be updated. Check "Adjust for Daylight Saving Time," then "OK."

I tried to apply that patch and error out that it was incompatible with the current files. I rand live update and applied 33 updates, rebooted and it worked. Go figure! maybe that update was part of them
