User's calendar meetings are off by one hour

We have a small network with six users running Small Business Server 2003, Windows XP SP2 and Office 2003. All updates and service packs are current.

When an 11 a.m. appointment is scheduled for the staff, five out of six users' workstations will show it at 11 a.m. But one user's calendar will show it at noon. All appointments that are scheduled on his calendar are shown one hour later. If we go to another computer and sign on as him, the appointments show up at the right time.

The problem seems isolated to his workstation. I checked the time settings on all computers and they are fine.

While you were headed in the right direction in checking the time on all your computers, you should have checked the time zone on the problematic workstation. That workstation is likely running in a time zone that's +1 over the time of the other workstations.


MEMBER FEEDBACK TO THIS ASK THE EXPERT Q&A:

Our users had this problem and the time zone was right but we didn't have the box checked for "Automatically adjust clock for daylight savings changes. " When we clicked that box, it started working fine.
