Recently, I set up a new computer for a friend of mine and I turned DST off because I didn't have the time change patch handy and I thought he could change the time manually anyway. Recently, my friend reports that the time went back an hour on two occassions and that he fixed it by setting the right time and checking the box to enable DST. The problem hasn't been encountered since. Just curious; why would the clock go back an hour when the enable DST box is unchecked. Doesn't make sense!

P.S. Yes I know I'm posting in the XP forum. That's what I set my friend up with!

✔ Best Answer
Because you set the clock to local time + DST and because you turned DST off, the computer reset the time to local time based on the time zone you set and no DST.

If you wanted to keep what was essentially an incorrect time you should have turned off Internet time as well.
