So are we to conclude, as you have not stated it, that the time you checked
was actually 1:37 p.m. Eastern Daylight, and that you are in the Eastern time

checked. In other words, Windows clock is already exactly right.

Your statements leave room for doubt about that.

Rerun Setclock.

When I launched SetClock, it said the timezone was "EDT : Eastern Daylight
Time (GMT-04:00)" [NOT GMT-5:00] and claimed that my PC clock was set to

That is correct. The Eastern Time Zone is currently in DST and is GMT-04:00.

Why do you not think that is correct?

2:37 [NOT 1:37]. I clicked on the GetTime button and the correction
appeared as 59 minutes, 59 seconds. I clicked on the SetClock button and
the SetClock GUI now says the PC Clock is 1:37 and the Accurate Clock is
1:37. The Windows Clock now says 12:37, which is an hour early of the

Your Windows clock must be set wrong.

If there IS something wrong, where is the problem? In XP? Or could there be
a bug in your SetClock program?

The problem is in your environment, not the software you keep trying to blame.
