    Are you guys on networks? It might be syncing to a network server that's off.

    We have certain machines here at work on a Netware server that's in the wrong time zone, and sets every machine connected to it to the wrong time zone. We can't change it without risk of corrupting the tree or something like that (I'm not a netware guy)...

    Here's the first thing I found that looks relative on MS technet. Gotta go work now, if I find more I'll post 'em.

    P.S. A lot of Win98 stuff will work in ME.

    CAUSE
    =====

    This last symptom listed in this article can occur for either of the following
    reasons:

    - Advanced Power Management (APM) settings are enabled in the BIOS.

    - You configure your computer to use third-party anti-virus, system utility,
    and screen saver programs.

    RESOLUTION
    ==========

    To resolve the issue for the last symptom listed in this article, use one of the
    following methods:

    APM Settings
    ------------

    Disable APM in the BIOS and configure Windows to manage APM. For information
    about how to disable APM in the BIOS, please contact the manufacturer of your
    computer.

    To configure Windows to manage APM:

    1. Click Start, point to Settings, and then click Control Panel.

    2. Double-click Power Management, select the settings you want for APM, and then
    click OK.

    Disable Third-Party Programs and Utilities
    ------------------------------------------

    Disable the following types of programs and utilities:

    - Anti-virus

    - Screen savers

    - System utilities

    Clean Boot
    ----------

    Configure your computer to start with a clean boot. For additional information
    about configuring a clean boot, click the article numbers below to view the
    articles in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:

    Q192926 How to Perform Clean-Boot Troubleshooting for Windows 98

    Q243039 How to Perform a Clean Boot in Windows 95

    STATUS
    ======

    Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in the Microsoft products that are
    listed at the beginning of this article.

    MORE INFORMATION
    ================

    If your computer loses time, use the Date/Time tool to set the correct time:

    1. Click Start, point to Settings, and then click Control Panel.

    2. Double-click Date/Time.

    3. On the Date &amp; Time tab, configure the correct time, and then click OK.

    To determine if the time loss is a result of a weak computer battery:

    1. Click Start, point to Programs, and then click MS-DOS Prompt.

    2. At the command prompt, type "time" (without the quotation marks), and then
    press ENTER.

    3. Compare this time with the time that is reported by the clock on the taskbar.

    4. Type "exit" (without the quotation marks), and then press ENTER.

    If the computer's time and the time on the clock are different, the computer's
    battery may be too weak to keep accurate time, and it should be replaced. For
    information about how to replace the battery, refer to the documentation
    included with your computer.

    NOTE: This problem does not affect the clock in your computer's CMOS.
