I'm not sure where I should post this. It might belong in a Windows 7 forum.
I have a dual boot machine, LMDE Mate amd64 up6 and Windows 7 Home Premium. When I boot up Windows after having been in Linux, the time display is 4 hours ahead of where it should be. I live in Virginia, USA, which during the Summer puts me 4 hours behind UTC. My workaround has been to download a Windows app which I manually run to correct the time. But sometimes, the NIST time server which this app accesses is not available.
I believe the fundamental problem is, Linux wants to set the system clock to UTC, and modify the desktop displayed time based on my world location, whereas Windows goes on the assumption that the system time is my local time.
How can I get these two OSes to play nicely with each other in this respect? Is there some boot option to keep Linux from sabotaging Windows?
Thanks for your time, which hopefully will be less than four hours
