    Hi, on a networked win2k machine i am having the following problem

    my time zone is set on central america, 6 hours behind what i need it to be.

    I can change this to gmt london and click apply and everything seems fine, there is no error messages.

    However my clock does not change and when i open up the settings again they have returned to central america.

    Can anyone help?

      This is just a guess, but do you need to be signed in as Administrator to make that change?

        i have considered this option, the person with the administrtor password is off work til next week, but i would have though that windows would have warned me that i did not have privilages to do this!

      Windows doesn’t always tell you when your access rights are insufficient. An example is display settings – it will let you go through the motions of changing them, but nothing will happen unless you’re logged in as Admin.

        ok, i tested a non administrator account on another win 2k machine, and this account has the ability to chance these settings.

      Are you on a domain? If so, the PCs are supposed to get their time from the domain controller, which in turn gets it from some Internet time server. Try changing the time and the time zone and then applying.

      If you are on a Windows 2000 network you can run this command to see where your system is getting it’s time from:

      net time /querysntp

      This will tell you where the system is getting the time from
