System Time not in Synch since Time Change Last Week

I noticed the other morning that my daily virus scan was running an hour earlier. After checking ZoneAlarm to ensure that it should be starting at 7:30, and the system time shows the correct time (XP changes automatically), the scan completes and then shows that it ran an hour earlier than it's scheduled to run.

I also noticed that the times in the posts here are an hour off.

Other than XP, what controls the time in a PC? I'm confused.

Yes. The system time shows the correct time. Zone Alarm shows that the scan should start at 7:30 but starts at 6:30, and when complete says that it ran at 6:30.

Right now it is 21:03. When I submit this reply, it will show as 22:03.

Times on posts here are controlled by the time zone, etc you have selected in the User CP under options and I do not believe they are related to your system time. Not sure about your Zone Alarm stuff though...

Checked the User CP stuff and at the bottom it lists this: All times are GMT -8. The time now is 11:00 PM. - which is correct.. but will still an hour later when I post. I'm confused

edited to add to my confusion: It appears that the post time is now correct, and I've done nothing to change anything. In fact, the time on my earlier post, which was an hour off, is now correct too. Hmm.
