What time will your organization's computers think it is on Sunday? Or, more important, will everyone's Outlook calendars be in sync on Monday morning? The United States Energy Policy Act of 2005 goes into effect on March 11 and unless certain updates are applied, the time zone settings for your computers' and handheld devices' system clocks may be incorrect during the four-week period affected by the change. To get the updates and learn how to apply them, the Microsoft Daylight Saving Time Help and Support Center is the place to start. There you can find a rundown of all products affected by DST. You can also participate in webcasts and technical chats geared to help you apply the updates. These updates have been released through a combination of channels including Microsoft Customer Support Services (CSS), hot fixes incorporated in Knowledge Base articles, Windows Update, Microsoft Update, Windows Server Update Services (WSUS), and the Microsoft Download Center. Also check out Microsoft IT Deployment Guidance to learn about the Microsoft internal best practices on easing the DST transition.
