Time Issue

I have a PC that wants a different timezone and time then the rest of the PCs on the network. So we went and changed this. But this reverted back to a different time. I suspect because the DC noticed the time change and changed the time. Is there a way to have a PC with a different time then your DC? I know if the time is too great of a difference you can run into logging on issues.

Is this a VM or a physical PC? If your running on VMware you can force the VM to synchronize with the host OS or even an ESXi host.

Have you tried stopping and disabling the Windows Time service on the machine you do not want to have synchronized?
Run "services.msc" in an account with administrative privileges, navigate to the "Windows Time" service, right click and select "Properties", then click "Stop", once the service is stopped click "Disable" and confirm your changes. Hope this works.

The timezone should not be an issue. You just have to ensure that the timezone is set correctly for each machine. Time is sent/recieved/stored locally as so many seconds past a certain time and date UTC.  The timezone tells the system to display the time +/- xx hours from UTC
