    Anyone know of a patch or anything that will fix this for our Windows XP OS? I got one for my Palm if anyone is interested.

    Actually so did microsoft in fact if you have auto update turned on you probably already have the fix installed.

    There is one for windows ce/mobile on microsoft's site as well.

    Search microsoft for:

    windowsXP-KB931836-X86-ENU.exe for the win xp patch. Run it and it will tell you if you already have it, if not it will patch it.

    tzmove.exe is the one for pocket windows. As I understand it you run this one Sunday morning and it adjusts each appointment.

    Auto update worked just fine for me
    But for those who didn't get the patch, here is a quick fix.

    Required tools:
    Scissors
    Black electrical tape
    Measuring tape

    Directions:
    Measure out exactly 8/16th of electrical tape
    Cut squarly with scissors
    Tape over bottom left of computer screen.
    Wait until April 1st and remove the application.

    My auto update worked great on all three of my XP computers. There is a third-party patch available for anyone running Windows 98/ME/2000:

    Scroll down to the "Freeware Downloads".

    My auto update didn't catch it. I downloaded tzedit.exe and that took care of it.
