To log in as root and change the UTC settings, use the command:
gksu gedit /etc/default/rcS

Don't know if this will help or not.
thanks i will try that the time went back a hour when i went into kubntu and back again to windows just now its a bit annoying to keep changing the time but i noticed the date stayed the same thats what messes things up if the date is wrong.

Glad you were able to figure out what to do. My knowledge of Linex Linux is being able to spell it right most of the time. Sincerely hope this will be a permanent fix.
