    Like most countries, Britain has now moved to summer time. I changed my clock in OS X to the BST fine, and went into Windows. I noticed the clock in Windows was still behind, so I changed it to BST as well. When I booted back into OS X the time had moved ANOTHER hour forward!

    How can I stop the clocks messing with each other? This only happens when the time is +1 (summer) so it must be something to do with how the two handle time.

    Windows uses local time while Apple uses Universal Time + whatever zone you tell it you are in. There seem to be problems getting the two to cooperate. I don't have a Windows partition, so I can't speak from experience, but check out this thread to see if that helps any.
