You cannot change the time zone

I lived in the Central time zone for more than 30 years, but my Windows 7 computer has turned to the Pacific time zone and does not allow me to change the Central time zone?

OT: Windows 7

Hi Robert,.

Thanks for posting your question in the Microsoft Community.

Of the question above, you are not able to change the time zone.

What is the accurate and complete error you get when you try to change the time zone?

Method 1: Setting the clock

See also, Synchronizing with a time server Internet, from the link mentioned above.

Method 2: I suggest you try the steps from the following link:

You cannot change the time and date if the time zone is set in Samoa (UTC + 13:00) and Ko 2657025 is installed in Windows 7 or in Windows Server 2008 R2

  • Change the time zone in CS-MARS 5.3.2

    When I try to change the time zone (with: "set time zone") on the CLI of MARCH, I was evicted and the session is closed... Who knows what to do?

    Best regards, Robbert

    I just had exactly the same thing happen on a 100th test running 4.3.2. The message was something about "session timeout" (you can not see unless you connect to the session in Putty). I don't know exactly how I corrected. I configured NTP and tried later... still logged on. I then changed the time-out settings in admin-> system settings and tried later in... still logged on. I change the settings for timeout back and all of a sudden I wasn't be disconnected. Not exactly what fixed it, but probably one of those things.

  • I can't change the time zone, date or account settings

    I recently installed Windows 8 and put in place a local account as a Microsoft account. Problem is, after the connection with my Microsoft account, I can no longer access the local account, change the date or time. The computer is checked on my Microsoft account. I'm going to user settings and literally I can't do anything, despite being an administrator. I clicked on several of the options, but they do not react in any sort of way.

    There are the links:
    (1) change your account type
    (2) manage another account
    (3) change user account control settings

    Any unreactive.

    I'm going to change the time and I get the message:

    [Window title]
    Date and time

    [Main instruction]
    Unable to continue

    You are not allowed to perform this task. For help, please contact your computer administrator.

    So, I turned on the local administrator account. And it won't let me change the account settings, but it will allow me to change the date and time. It's funny.

    So, how can I make my original local account available again? Why am I having these problems with the operating system in the first place?

    PS - I find more and more things I can't access, such as parental control. It really starts to check me.

    You have a virus I guess juice to refresh the PC if it does not work go for Reset, see this link:
