Are you using any proxies (maybe proxy server is in another timezone and thus setting your internet time to that zone)

Just a shot in the dark here....

Du är från Sverige, det är ju nästan som hemma för mig!

OK, my idea is not valid in your case. I have heard about Windows sometimes "forcing" Daylight Savings Time in region which is not using DST. But you time zone is a DST zone, and even if it wasn't the DST only begins in two weeks back there.

Have you tried to use another UTC +1 zone instead, for example Brussels, Copenhagen, Madrid, Paris? For your computer it is the same which zone to use as long as it is UTC +1, it might be worth to check if this fixes the issue.

Tack så mycket för hjälpen, jag ska prova.

I will try another setting, sometimes it works fine for a day or two and then the clock set it back one hour again. I try the brussel zone and report back later if it's working or not

Ok! Now I have tried everything but the clock still falls back one hour everytime I restart the computer. Could this be a bug in windows 7?

I would try replacing the battery in the motherboard if it is a desktop.

If it is a laptop, and you are loosing sleep on this issue , get hold of the tech. support and check whether they have any ammunition.

Just a thought.
Do you have any programs or utilities that when updated change the time?
I don't think it's a bug in Windows. A few billion Windows systems are not have this problem.
Could you check with your ISP and verify the time they use and your time when set correctly is the same.
