    Date and Time settings messed up


    I've a problem with my "date and time" settings and my "timezone" settings in my PC - they don't match, and this causes problems with my other time and dates displays in Outlook and on the Internet (when chatting, etc) as well.

    How can I fix this problem? I've 3 tabs in "Date and Time Properties" dialog window from the Control Panel:
    - Date & Time
    - Timezone
    - Internet time (currently no synchronization enabled)

    The time in the "Date & Time" tab is correct, but the timezone in the "Timezone" tab is wrong (points to GMT-8, but it should actually be GMT+8). Whenever I change to the correct timezone, the time in "Date & Time" gets changed and messed up as well (affects the time in Outlook, and so on).

    What can I do to fix this? Should I enable the time synchronization as well? Please help.

    P/s: I'm using MS Windows XP Professional and I'm not part of a domain at all, but just a workgroup.

    Date and Time settings messed up

    It's nornally appointments in your Microsoft Outlook planner that get shifted incorrectly.

    as for the sync setting you should set it to: time.microsoft.com

    also tick
    Automatically adjust clock for daylight saving changes

    what you can do is find out where your machine is getting it's time from.

    from command prompt type:

    and see what is returned
    Hope this advise helps.
