    It depends on the Software.

    When good old George W Bush signed the Energy Policy Act of 2005, this adjusted the Daylight Savings time in the USA. Canada changed their DST laws too in order to keep in step with the USA.

    So you either have a really old PC from 2006 or you don't have DST enabled on your PC.

    The possibilities are...

    A) You're NOT in the US OR Canada -- We're the first to "Jump Ahead" this year (on March 8th), while other countries will do this on a different week...  Europe will be on March 29th & Mexico will be on April 5th.

    B) You're in an area (like Hawaii, Arizona, parts of Indiana) OR a country (like Russia or Japan) that doesn't observe DST (or engaged it permanently).

    C) You have disabled the "Adjust for Daylight Savings Time Automatically" in your OS, assuming it has such an option.

    D) You have a heavily outdated OS -- You're likely running Window XP SP2 OR OLDER, since Windows SP3 included the patch to updated the DST rules within the US.

    E) You don't have a clock sync utility (which syncs up with a NIST time clock) running on the system. -- This is something that the OS would have this utility built-in since Windows 98 as some server security systems require system clocks to be in relative sync (within 5 minutes of each other) in order to connect to them.

    It's hard to say exactly way, but these are the most likely cases.  If you live in an area that does observe DST, you may want to do a manual clock resync (preferably with a NIST in the US) once you get an internet connection, but you'll want to check things out to find out why.

    A couple of possible answers.

    1. Your automatic change to DST might be turned off.

    2. Your timezone might be set to somewhere that doesn't use DST

    3. If you're running an older PC that's still running WinXP...then it only knows of the older April - October time change.

    For one and two...check your date and time settings. For #3, buy a new computer or at the very least install Linux on it.

    Daylight saving time does not start for another 3 weeks yet. It begins overnight on the28/29 March and ends overnight on 24/25 October.

    most likely you disabled The Feature inside of  the settings panel when setting up your computer (unless anon is right and your too early).

    If you're in the U.K it's not until March 29th.
