Should pc clock automatically alter!!

Should my pc clock have automatically gone back an hour or has everyone done it manually!

Also, i have my Antivirus set to auto update everyday at 14.00hrs, it is still set at that but doing it at 13.00hrs. Seems like things are out of configuration.

it will only change if you have the option ticked

double click on the clock to bring up properties - Time Zone tab - make sure set to correct time zone and put tick in box Automatically adjust...

don't know your operating system but in vista to have it change automatically right click the time in bottom right and click on adjust date/time then click on change time zone and make sure that automatically adjust clock for daylight saving time is ticked.

there is no tick box in the 'Time Zone Tab' & yes i'm in the correct time zone (GMT Casablanca, Monrovia).
In the 'Internet time' Tab, there is a tick box that is checked, 'automatically synchronize to an internet time server' ( & an option to update now & time it last synchronized & when it will again!
However it didn't adjust automatically!

ok yeh i see this!! its checked, whats the difference?, isn't 1 GMT the same as all GMT's?, i guess this is the reason it didn't change automatically!

GMT is the same but BST isn't.

If you have told the computer you are in Casablanca, it will change your clock when they are changed in Casablanca, which may not be the same time as they are changed in London.

ahh ok, so its about the time the GMT place is changed! Cheers!
