    I have an old computer and I am using Windows ME and have no good reason to upgrade to Windows XP. Microsoft is no help at all because I am using an obsolete version of Windows. How should I make the change for Daylight Saving Time starting on March 11th?? What is wrong with just advancing the system clock by an hour and pretending that we are still on Mountain Standard Time??

    I'd have to at least agree with Rick's sentiment. The main issue with the change in DST has to do with scheduling software. If you don't use your computer to keep track of meetings and such then it's not a big deal. On the first Sunday in April your computer will be back in sync anyway.

    Advance the clock an hour and change from standard to daylight time manually.

    Yeah, I don't see why you shouldn't just untick the box for automatic daylight savings time adjustment. Then change it manually. That's what I plan on doing, same as changing all the other clocks in the house.

    miketmx... If you double click on your time and the tab where the zones are there should be a checkbox to auto update with DST... Just uncheck that and do it manually..
