    Why would it do this? I change it, and when I reboot it's back to what it was. It's making me crazy! How can I fix it? The time in Windows is ok, but in OS X it's always changing. Thanks for the help.

    Have you enabled NTP under the Date & Time Preference pane?

    Here is a screen shot. That's how it's set up, obviously after I corrected it. It was displaying 4am instead of 10am.

    Check the "Set Date & Time Automatically" box. :p

    Thanks, I'll try that later. I'm at 4% battery life right now otherwise I'd do it now.

    I would just click the set time automatically box, but I don't connect to the net much on this Mac. Thanks for the suggestion though.

    The registry fix does work.

    So, I've made the change in the registry, but it's still not working right. Right now it's showing the time in Windows is 11:36 pm. Just 10 minutes ago it was showing the correct time at 5:30ish pm. When Windows first booted up today it was showing around 11 pm. So, I guess what I am saying is, the time is switching forward and back 6 hours randomly. I'm not even sure why it's doing that!

    This may sound a bit foolish, but did you check the timezone in both Windows and Mac? :p
