    So my widgets aren't coming up in the right time zone:

    1--My calendar widget that is built in has this problem (i.e. Spanish 111 at 4 pm is my actual class time, it shows up as 3 pm) -- so EST
    2--TV Forecast shows TV shows as EST.
    3--Countdown widget has EST as well

    How can I fix this?

    System Prefs > Date & Time
    I'd check all the setting and 'Set Date & Time Automatically' so it updates regularly.

    I'm not sure which widgets you're using, but many of them have the option to customize settings, such as time zone. Look for a small "i" on the widget, to go to the options.

    I just told you what widgets I'm using.

    Built in iCal, a countdown timer and TV Forecast.

    I already have set time and date automatically. It still doesn't work

    Actually, you didn't.
    There are multiple calendar widgets. You didn't specify which one. You didn't mention iCal.
    There are multiple countdown timers. You didn't specify which one.
    You didn't say if you had any settings options on each widget, separate from the date and time in System Preferences.

    There is no reason to be rude, think about your situation in a doctor's office. Telling the doctor you hurt what is the first question he is going to ask? Where does it hurt? If you expect people to be helpful you need to provide as much detail on the initial problem. We can't read the minds over the internet...

    Sorry,

    But I think the rudeness you've shown to others who did try to help you will prevent others from wanting to try as well. Chalk it up to experience....

    Alright,

    Did you follow Ashka's advice in the second post?
    Go to System Preferences>Date & Time>Time Zone. Is it correct there, yes or no?
    Morod, just trying to help....

    I gave him the answer (which I tested and proved works), but he was too rude to notice. He's on his own.

    Now you're being rude and dense. Learn to accept a little criticism and change accordingly.

    If you give some details, you still might get some help. If you continue posting one line complaints about how no one's helping you, you'll probably end up with a locked thread and maybe a ban if you don't shape up a bit.
