Updating computer time
If I everything is still good in a week, and again once DST is over, I'll answer the question with the fix mentioned below.
I'm trying the solution here, but this isn't easily reproducible (I need to wait for some amount of time, and I'm not sure what that amount is), so I'm posting this question in hopes that somebody can verify if that answer will work or can provide another answer.
Figured out that when I set Mountain Time (UTC-7) it shows me -6 on the clock for some reason.
However when I changed to Arizona time in the drop-down which is the same "UTC-7", clock shows me proper -7 hours.
(@MBraedley's feeling above seems correct to me.) Most (if not all?
) Linux systems use UTC by default for system time, and have NTP enabled.
We strongly recommend that you do not disable the update feature.
Java Update is a feature that keeps your Windows computer up-to-date with the latest Java releases.For monthly updates, you can select the day of the week and the time of the day.Monthly updates check weekly and notify you within 30 days that an update is available, however, if an update is considered critical you are notified within a week of its release.You should leave this process running in order to ensure getting the latest secure Java version.Yes, updating to Java 7, using Auto Update or updating through the Java Control Panel, will remove the highest version of Java 6 installed.
I have a new Dell computer running Windows 7 x64 (and no other OS).
