Windows XP users: be ready for the different Daylight Savings Time dates this year.

If you're sticking with Windows XP for awhile, please note that the dates for daylight saving time (DST) are different this year in the United States and Canada: DST will start on the second Sunday in March and end one on the first Sunday in November.

Automatic Updates in Windows has probably already sent and installed the update if you use it. (I don't on my own computer, but I have it enabled on my family's computers.) You can get the update as a support file from Microsoft in Knowledge Base (KB) article 92838, 2007 time zone update for Microsoft Windows operating systems, or you can do it manually using the instructions in KB article 91437, How to configure daylight saving time for the United States in 2007.

Microsoft has a less technical article about the time changes here: Preparing for daylight saving time changes in 2007

Carry on.
