Local Time Zone Configuration

Updated: November 25, 2009

Applies To: Windows Server 2008 R2

The Windows Time service (W32time) applies the local time zone configuration. Windows Time Service uses Coordinated Universal Time (UTC), which is based on an atomic time scale and therefore independent of time zones. Time zone information is stored in the computer's registry and added to the system time just before it is displayed to the user.
