Oh and because I know that UTC is new and GMT is old, how can I 'lock' this post so this post is closed to new comments?

Why close it? Nice to chat sometimes about something else, not always about RC and RTM and builds and so

Don`t take it too seriously. I`m not.

Change computer from UTC to GMT

I desperately need my timezone to read GMT and not UTC. This is due to coding of software at a client site. Because my computer is reading UTC, I am getting error messages that do not allow me to access Oracle Forms. I have tried going into the registry and updating the Display, but the choices in Time/Settings still reads UTC. I have rebooted twice. Still states UTC. Any other ideas on how to force the change to read GMT? Please help!!!

You should take that up with Oracle. If their application is failing because of time setting, then something is very very wrong with that application. But how do you know it is the time settings and just not an incompatibility with Windows 7?

How can I change the clock, and taskbar centering?
I don't like the date being displayed. Is there some way I can replace it with a larger-font 24-hour-time clock? And is there a way to center the taskbar icons? The one way I can find is to create a new empty taskbar, but that doesn't do what I want -- they're all still the same distance apart.
