Daylight Saving Time Issue - Outook/Blackberry

Question: Daylight Saving Time Issue - Outook/Blackberry

Here is my scenario

End-user has a blackberry in which I updated the DST 2007 patch on it. On the PC side, I ran WindowsXP-KB931836-x86-ENU which updated the DST on the PC. I also ran Microsoft tzmove patch for Outlook. Both patch ran successfully. When EU enters an appointment in his blackberry at 3pm it shows up in his Outlook at 4pm. Does anyone know how to resolve this issue?

Daylight savings time patches were applied but logged on users did not have admin privledges. Now I can not change the time or date and it keeps reverting back to previous time or date when I apply the change. This is happening on 5 computers with both XP and W2K.

I have searched for registry fixes or other fixes, but so far nothing has worked. These computers have software that is very time / date sensitive.

Any ideas or help would be greatly appreciated!

Please can anyone help. I am at the end of my rope tring to figure this one out. Since the daylight saving time change none of our computer will not change. The network consists of 450 nodes, 13 servers, 3 of which are domain controllers. Domain controlers are windows 2k servers and client computers are XP and 2k. The time on the domain controllers have been set to the correct time and will keep the time. The client computers seem to always stay one hour ahead. The only fix i have found for them is to uncheck the "Automatically adjust for daylight savings time" check box with in the time zone option. I don't really like doing this because it requires going to 450 + client computers and logging in as Admin and checking or unchecking this box. There has to be a better, faster way to do this. Please any ideas???

Ok folks

just getting this out NOW as next year it is going to be intresting for DST changes for enterprise enviroments.

it will happen 3 weeks earlies in 2007 on out. The hotfixes are out for Windows 2003 and XP SP2

windows 2000 and all other OS will need to modify registry keys to get this done.

The old time Zone registry

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Time Zones\Eastern Standard Time]


The new Timezone registry is as follows... the key figures are in bold

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Time Zones\Eastern Standard Time]


a breif explanation

0B equals the 11 month (hexadecimaly to decimal) in the first snipet it is 0A which is the 10th month or October

01 means the First week of that month

03 equals the third Month or April

02 means the 2nd week of the month.

so this applies to ALL the time zones.

I installed the time zone update patch KB931836 on 2-13-07 figuring that now my PC clock system would be corrected. Well this morning when I started my PC, the clock system had advanced 2 hrs instead of 1 hr.

So is Microsoft going to create another patch to patch up the incorrect patch or are we going to have to live with this miscue?

Hi Guys,

Have Windows XP SP-2 with IE 7 and all updates installed. I also use the latest versions of Firefox and Opera on my Dell My problem is very small. Despite keeping up with monthly Windows Update and having a malware free system, my OS clock had to be manually reset on March 11th for the new DST change over, (along with a lot of other stuff in the house.) Twice now, in approximately two-week increments I have had to change the clock increasing it one hour. The DST patch from Microsoft said that the patch that I had needed was already installed.

Are anybody else's OS clocks not holding the correct time?


Answer:Daylight Saving Time OS Clock Glitch

Yes, many people have had the problem.

So many that Msft has a web page devoted to the DST issue.


Last resort
You could also go into add / remove programs, look for KB931836.
Check with Msft to find out if the DST update can be uninstalled.
See the section Uninstalling the cumulative update rollup

Try to remove / uninstall it. Then manually re-install it.

Be sure to create, at a minimum, a system restore point, before making any changes.

I just heard on the news that the US and Canada is changing the start and end of Daylight Savings Time next year.

I believe it will begin one month earlier and end one month later.

Windows computers, like mine, auto adjust when there is a time change. Will the computer fix itself on the new dates?

Is this something built into Windows XP that can not be changed, or does the computer change its time based on's Time Service?


Also, I have a clock that sets itself to the proper time as soon as you plug it in. So if I unplug it and plug it back on, it is the right time again.

With this clock, are the dates stored permanently on it or does it somehow receive the time through the power source?

Will this clock be screwed up next year and in the future when the time changes occur on different times of the year?

Hello, I've been noticing this over the years. When Daylight Saving Time occurs (whichever one, moving the clock forward 1 hour or moving it backward 1 hour), ALL my files' "Date Modified" detail move forward or backward 1 hour.

For example, I have a document file called asdf.docx and its Date Modified detail is: 9/26/2015 4:00 PM
When Daylight Saving Time comes around to move the clock forward 1 hour, that file's Date Modified is now 9/26/2015 5:00 PM. That's not correct, it should stay at 4:00 PM. What the hell is happening?

Question: Daylight saving

The following link maybe of assistance to some:click here

Answer:Daylight saving

The following is an answer to the change in daylight saving questionaire:------------------------------------------------First of all, just in case you haven't heard, the new Daylight Savings Time (in the U.S.) will start on March 11, 2007 and extend through November 4, 2007. Between the two, there is a four week difference in the times and that's quite a big change for all of us to endure. But, don't worry, it should all come through as painless as can be. Okay, back to the question at hand. Will the time change affect your computer? Well, there are a couple of things that could happen when all of this hits. First, it's possible that your computer's time zones will be off target during the extended four week period. It's also possible that some of your software programs, etc. will run into some problems. Now, it's not guaranteed that you will have any problems once March 11th comes around, but it's better to be safe than sorry.So, to ensure that you won't have any trouble, Microsoft is suggesting that everyone updates their Windows operating system. It's important that you update any calendar programs you have on your computer as well. To help with all of this, Microsoft has put together a Daylight Savings Time Update Guide, which makes it very easy to get all the updates you need for your computer. All you have to do is answer a few questions and then run a quick download of the Update Guide. It will run exactly for the type of system you have, which will allow you to comba... Read more

Hi,Bit of an interesting one. If you have servers set to automatically update their time from a time server using NTP (Network Time Protocol?), what actually happens when there is a change in the time e.g. daylight saving.Say the clock goes back 1 hour. Does the clock on the servers go through to 1am then go back to midnight?! Doesn't that mean that from the server perspective there will actually be 2 occurences of each time between midnight and 1 i.e. any application logging date/time or any scheduling application will be confused by this?!Thanks in advance,Paul

Answer:NTP / Daylight Saving

The "actual" time is Greenwich Mean Time with time shifted from that depending on the time zone you are in. Time itself doesn't change, only your clock changes if you decide you want to go one hour ahead in the summer, therefore a time server doesn't need to change. Individual PCs which are set to adjust for "Daylight Savings Time" move their clock forward by an hour from GMT to BST but "actual" time indicated by a time server remains unchanged and still related to GMT.

I have a problem with Outlook 98 since the clocks have gone forward.I have a user who was receiving appointments that were showing 1 hour behind the actual time they were sent for. Although the users system time was correct and this was mirrored in Outlook, I noticed he did not have Daylight Saving checked within the Windows system clock.I checked the option and this resolved the problem. However, all of the users existing appointments have now moved forward an hour and become offset. Is there any fix for this apart from literally manually changing all recurring appointments to go back one hour within Outlook? I have searched the internet for answers but had no joy. Any advice would be highly appreciated!

Under Control Panel/Date and Time, be sure the Time Zone is correct. and it is checked for Daylight Savings time. Also go to Internet Time and make sure that it is synced to or try a different server. Make sure you have done all of your Windows Updates as there are updates for Daylight Savings time date being changed.

Earlier today I restored an Acronis image from a few days ago. As soon as the system was re-booted it pushed the clock forward another hour as, as far as it was now concerned, BST had not been applied yet.

Hi all,

I've had a look around and I found some posts which talk about the daylight saving problem but I'm not sure what that is. Here in Australia, Tassie usually goes back before the rest of the states but this year we all went back together. Now, don't know whether that has anything to do with what people are talking about but it isn't what I'm talking about.

My problem is that some of the files have changed their time stamp by an hour and I don't know why they didn't all or why they just didn't stay the same. I thought at first that perhaps I'd forgotten to change my camera to daylight saving and maybe I did. However, that shouldn't mean that only some groups of photos change time and others don't.

The pictures are all ones which I took before we changed back but I can't remember which I loaded to the computer today and which I loaded before we changed back (ie - last week some time or earlier they would have been loaded.)

Bit annoying - I was fishing out some pictures to put on the internet for friends and trying to use the time stamp to locate them among the many photos there. And of course, with the times being wrong, it wasn't quite as easy. Yes, I used thumbnails, but quite a few of the pictures are very similar at that size so time would have been really useful. That's how I noticed the problem of the time stamp changing for some of the files.

So why does this happen and can ... Read more

If you install the relevent Windows Update you won't need to know whether or not your computer will adjust. The Update is to make it adjust accordingly.

There was a similar situation here in Australia during 2006, when the decision was taken to extend DST for longer than usual owing to the hosting of the Commonwealth Games in Melbourne. Installing the Windows Update meant no DST-related PC problems.

When does the next version of windows come out? 2007?

We change time back one hour tonight, our computers do it automatically of course if we have that function selected.

My curiosity is:

If there is no new version of Windows coming out by the time the law changes in 2007 that extends the one hour time change up until the end of November won't everyone have to do that manually but only after unselecting the option for the computer to do it or else the time change will be one month to early?

If there is a new version of Windows by 2007 I'm sure I'm sure the clock will be programmed to change at the end of November.

From what I can tell there is no current function in Windows that allows the user to set which day of the year to change the time but is programmed into that function individually according to the time zone selected.

If not and since todays computers will be online in 2007 maybe MS will release a patch to adjust for the new date change in the clocks program.

I had the box checked on the computers on my network to automatically go to daylight savings time. Because of a particular application, I decided that I didn't want to automatically switch back to standard time at 2:00 AM. I would do it manually later.

So I unchecked the box on the server and all of my PCs on the 28th. When I got ready to make the manual change around 5:00 AM on the 29th, they were all already on standard time.

Does this mean that the box only affects going to daylight savings time and that it will always revert to standard time?

Hi all,

Here at work, we have around 40 computers around our store and for some reason the windows time keeps getting off even with the microsoft patch installed. My local machine in the office seems fine but the machines in the store were very random when time changed in the spring. We had computers go 1 or 2 hours ahead and sometimes 1 or 2 hours behind. The first thing I checked was the time zone but that was not it in most cases. If I corrected the time, I would just come back a few hours later to see that the time had changed back even though none of these computers are set to synchronize with an internet time server. We finally just ended up setting the majority of the computers here to not automatically adjust for daylight savings time which seemed to fix everything.........but next weekend we will have to manually update all the times again which can be time consuming especially when some of these computers are on carts and can be moved all about the store. I was thinking about making a batch program to fix this using net time but I'm getting problems there too. On my machine I get this when typing in net time:

Western Australia had a trial of DST over three years and (fank Gawd) the trial ended in March this year. It won't be back.
Microsoft put out a patch in 2006 to make the adjustment automatic. I've just noticed that the patch is still active, my computer is showing 6:50 AM when it should be 5:50.
I tried to install this patch
but I get an error message that a newer or same time zone update has already been installed.

So far as I can determine, my system clock was updated with no problem on all my machines (Desktop running Vista Home Premium 32-bit and 2 laptops running Vista Home Premium 64-bit).

However, it appears that every file on the system had its Date Modified time updated to one hour later. I run a utility called Fingerprint every day to log file changes and it seems to have picked up my entire system

Anyone else experience this?

If I'm not mistaken, daylight savings time beginning and ending times will be changed this year. Am I to assume that we only have to make changes on Servers of which the clients get their time from? Outside of that, other systems that aren't server dependent such as UPS machines and such, will need the time to be changed manually?

Just curious if anyone has already started to work on this.

Sorry if this doesn't belong in this particular forum. Wasn't sure where to ask.

"On August 8, 2005, President George W. Bush signed the Energy Policy Act of 2005. This Act changed the time change dates for Daylight Saving Time in the U.S. Beginning in 2007, DST will begin on the second Sunday in March and end the first Sunday in November. The Secretary of Energy will report the impact of this change to Congress. Congress retains the right to resume the 2005 Daylight Saving Time schedule once the Department of Energy study is complete."

hi, i have windows vista on a toshiba satellite a305. 
since daylight savings started,  the computer wont keep the hour-ahead time. it reverts back to hour-behind time.
i have tried different internet time servers and going off the sync with internet time server all together.
i have tried manually adjusting the time ,  checking and unchecking the box automatically adjusting for daylight savings.
and what ever i do, it reverts back to regular daylight time, not daylight savings. 
it usually occurs after several minutes, i come back after a while and reverts back to old time.
could it be because the daylight savings time is earlier this year than in past years.
for example in 2006 daylight savings started on april 2. 
if memory serves me i had a similar problem last year, and it went away after a few weeks,
could that be why?
any thoughts, let me know

Since Congress passed the New Daylight Savings Time effective this year, computers without Windows XP or updates or without Vista will not reset its time correctly this year (or future years)--it will be 3 weeks late in the spring since they are starting DST three weeks early and one week early in the fall. So for Windows 2000 and NT, there is a 3rd party utility to fix your time--go here:

and scroll down to Free Downloads.

The update is for these time zones:

-Alaska Standard Time Zone
-Central Standard Time Zone
-Eastern Standard Time Zone
-Mountain Standard Time Zone
-Pacific Standard Time Zone
-Atlantic Standard Time Zone (Canada)
-Newfoundland Standard Time Zone (Canada)

So if you are not in that time zone, don't download it.

I haven't tried these fixes, so do it at your own risk. Perhaps someone else can let us know how it works.

Australian daylight saving time update for Windows operating systems in 2006

The Commonwealth Games are scheduled to be held in Melbourne, Australia during March 2006. Several Australian states have changed the date on which daylight saving time changes to standard time. These states are New South Wales, Victoria, Australian Capital Territory, South Australia, and Tasmania. In these states, daylight saving time changes to standard time on the first Sunday of April 2006.

The following currently-supported Microsoft products use the default daylight saving time transition date. These products do not reflect the change to a new transition date:

I know corporations will start to have calendar issues and such with Outlook and other programs so I'm posting this for reference.

Daylight savings time for the United States, Europe and parts of Asia will end on Nov. 1 at 2 a.m. local time. Some parts of the world ended daylight savings time in mid-October. Because times zones changes are staggered be sure to confirm any meetings you have scheduled with participants from other regions. If a time discrepancy is identified, you will need to contact the meeting organizer.

To ensure the successful coordination of meetings, please verify meeting start times with the organizer and include the start time of the session, along with the time zone(s), in the subject line of the meeting invitation. Employees should check their Time Zone Settings to ensure their time zone aligns with their work location, and more importantly that their computer is automatically set to adjust for Daylight Savings Time.

Europe ? Oct. 25 at 1 a.m.
? Mexico (except Sonora) ? Oct. 25 at 2 a.m.
? United States (except Hawaii and Arizona) ? Nov. 1 at 2 a.m.
? Canada (except Saskatchewan) ? Nov. 1 at 2 a.m.

Daylight savings time began for Australia and Brazil on Oct. 4 and Oct. 18, respectively.

The patch is already installed on the laptop. The problem was the daylight savings checkbox was unchecked. This now has caused problems.

I've formatted the card several times using phone and pc (when it doesn't bsod ofcourse).

Anyone here an expert with BES servers? I am trying to activate a blackberry, and i get "an error occured. Contact your System Administrator." The blackberry was previously on the bes under another account, I wiped it, deleted that account and want to put it under another account. It's that one particular account taht wont work. If I try to activate it with a test account I made, then no problem. I tried deleting the bb account and recreating several times, no go. I'm almost ready to recreate the AD account but that is a huge can of worms as it tends to break lot of stuff.

Answer:Issue activating a Blackberry

So you deleted the account on the BES and wiped the handheld? Still didnt work, so you tried another account you created on the phone and it worked. Did you wipe it after the test account? Since the test account works it sounds like the Enterprise Plan on the phone is working correctly. Do you have full data coverage? After the next wipe try a battery pull, recreate the account. Are you setting a password or generating it?

Tonight I ran into my first Blackberry OS problem it had to do with themes (wallpaper) I had downloaded two themes from the Blackberry store and subsequently messed up the operating system they were from third-party sources as I found out I have only had this Blackberry for two weeks and messed it up twice oh well that is part of the learning process. If you work with something like I do every day with a computer its inevitable it's going to mess up the key is learning how to get out of it. Well I almost figured it out first I knew when I downloaded two themes through the Blackberry store and the phone did not work properly before that I downloaded a drive safe application and the phone worked fine so it was the themes. "In my mind I said okay how do I delete them so I went to the help on the phone and it told me to go to device options and say delete however device options does not exist the actual process is 1 go to options advanced options and under that applications and you will see a list of all the applications you have on the phone and you can delete them out of their this deletes them through the Blackberry device only. The third-party applications also screw up your desktop manager which wasn't working properly I found that interesting so the limitations of this current version of the operating system is the themes that work are the ones that come with the operating system and you take your chances with the ones you download.

All disk activity ceases in a few seconds when the window appears.Is there a way to reduce the time on this window ?

Sometimes in PCs, including my own, an extra nought is added on to make it 20000. Not sure why this happens but when it does it leads to a very long shutdown time.

Despite them being on my iphone i have managed to extract them into a word document listed with a line inbetween eachone. However i intend to set them out in text boxes just like they are on my iphone and was wondering if anybody knew a quick way to do this- other than copy and pasting 6855 texts haha! Is there a database i can set up that will insert them into the boxes for me?

Answer:Need a time saving method to create anniversary present

Hi there, welcome to the board!

While I'm not very good with Word VBA, this may get you started...
Option Explicit

Sub MakeSMSPrettyForTheLovebirds()

Dim wdDoc As Document, wdNewDoc As Document
Dim wdPara As Paragraph, wdShp As Shape
Dim iLeft As Single, iTop As Single
Dim iWidth As Single, iHeight As Single

Set wdDoc = ThisDocument
Set wdNewDoc = Application.Documents.Add
iLeft = 75
iWidth = 450
iHeight = 50

For Each wdPara In wdDoc.Paragraphs
If Len(Replace(Trim(wdPara.Range.Text), Chr(13), "")) = 0 Then
'blank line
Selection.EndKey Unit:=wdStory
iTop = Selection.Information(wdFirstCharacterLineNumber) * 55 + 75
Set wdShp = wdNewDoc.Shapes.AddTextbox(msoTextOrientationHorizontal, iLeft, iTop, iWidth, iHeight, Selection.Range)
wdShp.TextFrame.TextRange.Text = Replace(Trim(wdPara.Range.Text), Chr(13), "")
End If
Next wdPara

End Sub
This needs to be put into a standard module of the document you wish to run this on. It will put each line separately into a text box with the text inside of it. Down and dirty, but I don't know when your anniversary is, so if you get nothing else in time, maybe this will help.

Oh, and happy anniversary!!

Hello. Here is my issue short and sweet.

When I use ANY of the web based emails (Yahoo, Gmail, Comcast) on computer A, all of my emails are stamped an hour earlier than real time. By real time, I mean the clock on the computer AND the analog tick-tock clock on my kitchen wall. Both display the correct time accurately.

When I use ANY of the web based emails (Yahoo, Gmail, Comcast) on computer B (or C or D), all of my emails are stamped with real/correct time that matches my kitchen and computer. These computers ALSO reflect correct time.

With either computer, any file created or saved has a date and time stamp that is correct and reflects real time. Whether saved with a web app, a windows app or a cmd line app.

On all computers my time zone is set correctly. The "adjust for DST" box is checked. I also ran TZEDIT to confirm that my DST dates are correct.

Now for the big question. How is this resolved?

Thank you.

I always keep a backup of my Outlook .pst file just n case I need it...

Just doing a back up and notice that the files do not have any association linked... I am sure it used to show the Outlook icon but can't be sure... can anyone confirm this.. I did try to link to Outlook but is failed...

This is what I mean...

This is what I get when I try to associate it to Outlook... Which seems odd... unless it is because Outlook is open?

Answer:Outook Office 365 .pst

Mine have the Outlook association, I'm using the Office 2016 package rather than the Office 365 but should be same.

I would advise you use the installer (uninstaller - Change), to do a repair rather than manually setting the association as the Office associations are not standard

Answer:Outook Express

if you go to tool/options in outlook, click on the tab "other" there you will find a tick box which allows you to enable or disable the "empty deleted items" message.if you want to set the send/receive to automatic then in the same options page click on the tab "mail setup". once again there is a check box which allows this action to take place when outlook is opened.harpur
