Windows 7: The time is always off by one hour

The time is always off by one hour

Hi! I have a problem. The time showing in the lower right corner of the taskbar is always behind one hour. I have the correct region set. If I change the clock to the correct time it will still show the wrong time when I restart my computer. I have also tried to syncronize it with internet time and it's still the wrong time when I reboot.

Any ideas how I can correct this problem?

Hi there
Try checking the Date and Time in the Computers BIOS.

Try checking or un-checking the selection to adjust for daylight savings time.

That one word caught my eye there. Do you mean you have set the correct region / location in Control Panel > Region and Language properties? If yes, it has nothing to do with default time zone.

Just to be sure, have you checked which time zone your system is using from Date and Time properties?

Yes the correct region is set in date and time settings. The clock is correct in bios. Why does windows 7 set my clock back when I restart the computer?

As Kari said Region has nothing to do with the clock. It is set based on Universal Time Coordinated (UTC) Coordinated Universal Time - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Also referred to as Greenwich Mean Time (GMT) and Zulu time, ex. 1200Z
