i'm not sure which registry key you need to change.

maybe you could try disabling the windows time service instead?

type services.msc into your start-menu searchbox, find 'windows time', and disable it.

Thank's for your suggestions, but there is another problem om my Win 7. I will try to explain my situation. I have a MacBook Pro, with double OS. Default OS is Mac OS X, other - Windows 7. For example: on Mac OS X is 12:00 and i restart system to Win 7. Everything is ok, when i am disconnected from the internet, time on Win 7 is 12:00. Immediatly when internet connects, it updates -2 hours, and show me 10:00. When i disconnect from the internet again, nothing changes, time remains 10:00. Every time i restart my Mac OS into Win 7, i have to change time +2 hours and it's a very annoying thing. I think, that changing time zones will not solve this problem, because Mac OS X fix time like UTC, but Windows like UTC+2, because my time zone is Lithuania. I have already solve time zone question, i just set the time zone on both OS like UTC.

In Windows (UTC Dublin, Edinburgh, Lisbon, London)


In Mac OS X (Dublin-Ireland)


As i mentioned, everything is now ok, time is not changing when i change OS, until i am disconnected from the internet. I suppose, if i will find the solution how to disable time autoupdate, this problem will dissapear. I hope you understand my english;D
