If you do not have rights, then I do not think you can change it.

A domain connected machine may run a few minutes off (I see that a lot). A non-domain machines uses the Microsoft Time Server and should be accurate.

Any decently new machine adjusts twice a year for Daylight Saving Time where applicable.

Is your time way off?

yes it's three hours ahead of time. I do have the local admin password but when i logon as the local admin and change the time and then have the user logback in the times changes don't reflect on when she's logged on.

It would appear the time zone is incorrect. Windows comes with the wrong time zone (from my perspective) - 3 hours out.

Log in as the user, change the time zone and when asked, authenticate with your user name and password. That will work.

Have you checked the time zone to ensure it's correct?

Time does not reset based on user.
