Tuesday, May 08, 2012 3:22 AMHi !
I have to remove the checkbox for Automatic Daylight Saving Time (win xp sp3)
The Following Registry Code simply works
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
it removes the tick
but i need to open the time window (double click on time in corner of screen) and i must go to time zone tab and just click ok
then the time will get back and set fine
is it anyway to get rid of that or do that automatically by a script or .. ?
I tried this one but it put the tick back again and refresh it (opposite to what i like to do)
Set objSh = CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
'Get the StandardName key of the current time zone
szStandardName = objSh.RegRead("HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\TimeZoneInformation\StandardName")
'Enumerate the subkeys in the time zone database
const HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE = &H80000002
szTzsKeyPath = "SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Time Zones"
objReg.EnumKey HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE, szTzsKeyPath, arrTzSubKeys
'Step through the time zones to find the matching Standard Name
szTzKey = "<Unknown>"
For Each subkey In arrTzSubKeys
If (objSh.RegRead("HKLM\" & szTzsKeyPath & "\" & subkey & "\Std") = szStandardName) Then
'Found matching StandardName, now store this time zone key name
szTzKey = subkey
If szTzKey = "<Unknown>" Then
'Write entry to the Application event log stating that the update has failed to execute
objSh.LogEvent 1, "DST 2007 Registry Update and Refresh failed to execute on this computer. Time zones failed to enumerate properly or matching time zone not found."
'Launch control.exe to refresh time zone information using the TZ key name obtained above
objSh.Run "control.exe timedate.cpl,,/Z" & szTzKey
'Get current display name of refreshed time zone
szCurrDispName = objSh.RegRead("HKLM\" & szTzsKeyPath & "\" & szTzKey & "\Display")
'Write entry to the Application event log stating that the update has executed
objSh.LogEvent 4, "DST 2007 Registry Update and Refresh has been executed on this computer." & chr(13) & chr(10) & chr(13) & chr(10) & "Current time zone is: " & szCurrDispName & "."

I have not tried the above solution and i am not sure if it works. I suggest you to backup your registry first and do the change.
