WinXP - Time Zones

In 2007 new dates for DLS Start and DLS End came into effect. There were several WinXP Updates released before the effective date and your system should have the new DLS set for U.S.A. Time Zones. This caused some problems at the time.

Just in case....

The update for other versions of Windows (like Win2k) were not released at the same time. Fortunately the Win2k Resource Kit Tools (see sidebar) has a tool that allows you to manually edit Time Zone settings. TZEdit. This tool works with WinXP if your having problems or just want to verify the 2007 Time Zone Update was applied. The Start/End shown in the screenshot are the new settings.
