    Macbook Al 2.4 GHz, 4GB RAM
    OSX 10.6.8

    All of a suddent my MB refuses to come out of Cupertino time so my computer is telling me it's 3 hours earlier than it actually is here on the East coast. I thought maybe this was an update-related issue as I had been ignoring the 10.6.8 update for a few days - but nope, still having the same problem.

    Internet is working fine but when I go into SysPrefs for Date&Time it won't connect. So i googled the problem and was told to delete the timezone plist but i can find no such file in my library preferences.

    Rebooting, updating, and turning off firewall on my router isn't helping.

    any ideas?

    quick update: Windows XP running on VMware is reporting the time just fine on the same machine so it seems to be an OSX-specific issue. this is annoying me to know end but definitely not worth a trip to the "genius bar"

    any insight at all would be great:D

    This answer summed it up for me. I'm experiencing the same issue with OS X Lion Server but not VMWare.
