    I have my timezone set correctly. My date and time are correctly displayed by Windows (XP SP3) but other programs like QuickBooks and Thunderbird timestamp everything as GMT so all my emails and QuickBooks backups are timestamped 5 hours later than they should be. Windows time stamps all file changes with the correct time it's just other programs that are not picking up the timezone correctly from windows.

    I searched my registry for timezone and all the items I found were set to 'Eastern standard time.'

    Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    Thanks!

    These programs save your data to some server across the internet, or, write your data to your harddrive?
    If to the internet, very often, that server's date/time becomes your files' date/time. Similar to discussion boards.
    If only to your harddrive, then I have no answer because I assume you already checked for time/date options within the software.

    Check the settings in "Region" in Control Panel, could be set incorrectly

    No, I checked that first, of course. It is set to Eastern US GMT -5:00.

    See if Time and time zone settings - MozillaZine Knowledge Base helps.
