Why did some re-occurring appointments change their time forward 1 hour after Daylight savings time, for 1 user?

Hello:

We have 1 user that has had the start & End time changed in some of his re-occurring appointments, after daylight savings time?  Again, not all of his re-occurring appointments; but some.

For example, this 1 user has a re-occurring appointment for 3:00 pm to 5:00 pm to be out of the office every MON - FRI.  After daylight savings time, this past weekend, the times from that specific appointment changed to start 4:00 pm to 6:00 pm.

The same appointment before daylight savings time shows to begin and end at the correct times (start 3:00 pm, end 5:00 pm).  But like I said after daylight savings the start time shows at 4:00 pm and the tend time shows to be 6:00 pm (from the monthly view).

I just had him delete that re-occurring appointment and then re-create it and that worked.   There is another re-occurring meeting with the same problem; but, this involves other employees as well.  All of the other employees have the correct Start & End times listed on there; but this 1 user has the times forwarded 1 hour later (just like the example above).

My question is:  "Is there a better way to correct this 1 user's calendar appointment problem besides 'deleting the existing meeting and re-creating it' "?   Is there a setting on this user's Exchange account that I can refresh?

Because if I have the organizer delete the re-occuring meeting and re-create it, that will involve the other employees as well.

We use Microsoft Exchange Server 2007, Microsoft Outlook 2007 client, and Windows 7 professional at our facility.

Sounds like the system is not patched for daylight savings date change.

Downloading updates did not fix the exsisting meeting time errors on the PC.  Removeing the meeting and then re-adding it, did fix it.

Perhaps installing the updates (sp3) before daylight savings time would have fixed the problem.  

There were other re-ocurring meetings that did change the time over just fine.  Only 2 of them did not.
