    Windows Time Changes when a user in a different time zone logs in


    Hello,

    I have several users internationally that log into my windows machine to access bookkeeping software. I have noticed lately that my windows time will change to an incorrect time (I believe based on their location) when they log in. I have tried to disable automatic time sync for time zone and date/time, but that did not help. I am assuming that there may be a policy that I can edit to prevent other users from changing times.

    Does anyone have any idea how I can stop this from happening?

    Thanks,
    Dave

    :)

    Unable to change the time zone in Windows 10

    I'm running Windows 10 Pro. My time zone is Jerusalem, but I need to change it to Eastern to test a program I'm working on.

    The time zone won't change. I have tried:

    • From the clock/calendar, when I change it - it changes back.
    • From Control Panel - Date and Time, "Change time zone..." - when I click save I get the message "Error occurred - your changes could not be saved."
    • As the Built-in Administrator from the command line using tzutil - I get the message "Insufficient privileges to set the current time zone."

    The registry key TimeZoneInformation has Full Control for Administrators

    Administrators are listed in the Local Security Setting "Change the Time Zone"

    Any suggestions?
