I don't know much about computers so bear with me please.
I THINK I have Windows XP, but this is my work computer and I really don't know how to check.

My problem is that the clock on my computer keeps setting itself back an hour everyday. Daylight savings time isn't til next week, and it's been doing this for about a week and a half now.

I could be patient and just wait until this weekend, when daylight savings hits and I wont have to worry about it, but I wanted to make sure there wasn't another problem or something that actually needs to be fixed.

Thank you to whoever replies with any help.

Since this is your work computer I feel that you should get IT department input for this. It is possible that your company has not applied the Windows Update for Daylight savings time change that was offered last spring: http://www.microsoft...;displaylang=en There may be an important reason.

If the Update was applied to your computer, then there may be other issues involved. Either way, the problem needs to be resolved, and it is really the company's responsibility to correct it.

Since it has already been a while, perhaps you should just wait til tomorrow and ask about it at work before taking unilateral action that may put you out of sync with the rest of the network.

Chances are high that this is just a minor setting adjustment that can be made in a couple of minutes.
