    5744. Daylight Savings Time here has ended, and instead of the clock going
    back one hour, it went back two. The time zone is correct, so I am assuming
    this is a bug. When I ran the synchronization tool, it corrected it.

  6. If you are dual booting, and have each operating system set to handle
    daylight saving time, you will get two corrections. Each system you boot
    into will change the clock one hour. I just went through this with my eldest
    son.

    It happens all the time.

    I was just going to mention that because I *was* on XP at the time of the
    change last night.

    This solves the situation here - dual booting as well - thanks -
    will set one OS NOT to handle clock changes

    Yeah, but if you go to another OS now for example, what time will you see
    then? I bet it will be two hours different then.

    first off this morning to make sure they were all were correct., and they
    all are.

    My 64-bit install got it right, the 32-bit version did not.

    I recall that Windows XP had this exact same issue before one of the
    service packs. I clearly remember that when I first experienced the
    end of DST with XP installed that it dropped me back two hours - one
    hour for the time change at 0200, and another hour when it reached
    0200 again...that's a "duh" as far as I'm concerned.

    :)

    It's pretty sad if Vista, which has been in development for five
    (5!!!) years also suffers from this simple bug. I can't confirm it
    here because I have the time sync set to poll every 24 hours and it
    hit the server before I woke up Sunday morning.
