Thanks. Very helpful. I was going through the control panel security settings etc, and it, (the computer),kept telling me I didn't have the privilege to "spring ahead" - daylight savings time. I could have saved myself some time if I had just asked the net in the first place. Live and learn. Penelope K. Rowley, Vancouver, BC
