2007 time zone update for Microsoft Windows operating systems, including SBS 2003

KB-238388 provides important information to help address the 2007 time zone update based on the Daylight Savings time changes taking place this year.  


For those not familiar with the Daylight Savings Time change I am referring to, one of the key provisions of the Energy Policy Act of 2005 was to extend Daylight Saving Time (DST) by approximately four weeks. In compliance with this provision, beginning in 2007, DST dates in the United States and Canada will start three weeks earlier (2:00 A.M. on the second Sunday in March) and will end one week later (2:00 A.M. on the first Sunday in November).  You can read more about this change HERE.


Thank you and have a wonderful day,
