    internet time wrong

    I live in eastern time zone and my windows 8 clock keeps resetting 1 hour earlier. When I Check autosynch under change date/time it shows the time as 1 hour earlier as well under all the different reporting companies. How do I Correct this or do I just turn off auto synch?

    Go into the "Change Time and Date" Settings (click on Clock on the taskbar) then click on the "Change Time Zone" and see if the "adjust for daylight savings time" is checked.
