    I have Win 7 running on Boot Camp 3.2, and recently the time between it and OS X 10.6.6 has gotten out of sync. Now if set one correctly, when I boot into the other it will be off by seven hours.....and vise versa. Anyone know how to sync these up?

    Do you have the time set to auto update in both operating systems preferences?

    Hmm...you just made me realize something. I disabled that in Windows because it was wrong one day......and that happened to be a day when my internet was out. Should it be enabled in both?

    I had this problem with Mac and Windows 7 on my laptop. I found a workaround where you edit a registry key in Windows to enable something and the clocks become synced when switching between the two operating systems.

    Here's an article for editing the Windows registry to get the clocks to sync. It's pretty simple to do but be careful. Create a system restore point before you do this in case you need to revert back due to any problems.

    That sounds promising, but it looks like you forgot the link. ;)
