Windows 7: System Clock Not Showing Daylight Time

System Clock Not Showing Daylight Time

My system clock is showing Pacific Standard Time and there is no Check Box for daylight time.

I found the suggestion of applying a Restore Point.

I found a restore point from 3/15/19, 3 days ago. System Restore said I my System Disk has errors.

I followed prompts although I ran chkdsk with both options unchecked:
1) Automatically fix file system errors
2) Scan for and attempt recovery of bad sectors

The chkdsk results returned say the device error free and is ready to use.

Do I simply set the clock to Alaska time until November? It seems the most expedient fix.

Are there more 'elegant' options?

DST varies from place to place. WU install a KB file with the rules to change a time zone according to DST start and end.
The question is: Is WU installing those optional updates?
