 TAKE ACTION BEFORE YOUR PC CRASHES.

The U.S. Energy Policy Act of 2005, passed by the U.S. Congress July, 2005, extended Daylight Saving Time (DST) in the U.S. by approximately four weeks. As a result, beginning in 2007, DST will start three weeks earlier on March 11, 2007, and end one week later on November 4, 2007, resulting in a new DST period that is four weeks longer than previously observed. These for weeks are referred to in this article as the "extended DST period". Visit MSN Encarta for more general information on DST. Previously DST started on: With the new law, DST will start on: First Sunday of April (04/01/07) Second Sunday of March (03/11/07) Previous DST ended on: With the new law, DST will end on: Last Sunday of October (10/28/07) First Sunday of November 11/04/07 Unless certain updates are applied to your computer, it is possible that the time zone settings for your computer's system clock may be incorrect during this four week period. This depends on where you live and which time zone you have selected. To see the time zone settings on your computer, follow these directions. When your time zone settings are incorrect your clock may be off by one hour, and certain applications running on your Windows based computer may not display the correct time. To address this, Microsoft is providing many free updates and tools that will update your system automatically.

Sometime on the morning of 2007 March 11, according to a new law passed recently, Daylight Saving Time will occur. This is different from in past years, and computers may not be ready for the change; they may assume that we are still on Standard Time, causing problems to occur. 4 weeks ago - 10 answers - Report Abuse 0 Add/Save Add to private Watchlist Save to My Web Add to Del.icio.us Add to My Yahoo!

Member since: November 01, 2006 Total points: 4,860 (Level 4) Points earned this week: --%Best answer Best Answer - Chosen by Asker That in itself will not cause any COMPUTER to crash. An APPLICATION, that uses the computer clock could be a different matter. If data "enters" the application after that time and the NEW time is used to associate the data, there will be a mixture of old and new times in the application. That could certainly cause trouble for something like an air traffic control system for example. Hopefully the technical people associated with these systems are aware of this NOW and taking the steps needed. I'm really not worried, supposedly there were going to be all theses problems on 1/1/2000.....and we were ready. 0 0 Asker's Rating: Thanks for the info on this Y2K-like problem. I did find a Windows update on DST7 or 3/11 (two possible names for the problem), namely 928388. However, the Windows update popup balloon on my computer presently does not show this. Hopefully this will resolve itself like Y2K did.
