'Automatically adjust clock for DST' is missing

    If I double-click the time on my Win XP Pro machine, and then select the
    "Time Zone" tab, the option to adjust the clock for DST is not there.
    ("automatically adjust clock for daylight saving changes"). Why has it
    disappeared, and how can I bring it back? Thanks for reading.

    It's called casting a wide net to catch a bigger audience.

    I've tried setting different zones but it never re-appears.

    > If you select a +10 setting, for example, you will see the option reappear.


    No, it didn't.

    Now I'm just being curious. Does australia use DST?
    What would happen if you set the time zone say to US Eastern?
    I'll bet it becomes available.

    From your post's headers: Microsoft Outlook Express 6.00.2900.2180

    Check in at http://update.microsoft.com/microsoftupdate & install the scores
    of updates the computer needs. Follow all prompts & reboot. Any different
    now?

    What anti-virus application or security suite is installed and is your
    subscription current? What anti-spyware applications (other than Defender)?
    What third-party firewall (if any)?

    Has a(another) Norton or McAfee application ever been installed on the
    computer (e.g., a free-trial version that came preinstalled when you bought
    it)?

    Do you use Registry cleaners?

    It's all solved now. The problem was the city set for the timezone does
    not have DST at all, which is why the option doesn't appear. Also, I did
    not mention the timezone I am in because (a) it's not my PC with the
    problem, and (b) it didn't occur to me to be relevant anyway. I was
    posting on behalf of someone else, and was getting them to replicate
    your responses.

    Thanks to all who replied. And believe me, the in-fighting in some of
    the reponses are what makes Usenet so adorably wonderful. :) Out.

    No, it's called shotgunning (for the effect you note). It also means you
    haven't a clue where to post so you just scatter it everywhere. If you are
    unwilling to find and decide on an appropriate newsgroup, why would anyone
    else give any more consideration to your post than you did?

    Different posters have different thresholds as to what they consider
    EXCESSIVE cross-posting. My threshold is at 4; however, I simply kill file
    anyone posting to 4, or more, groups so I wouldn't see their posts to notify
    them that shotgunning means their post is unimportant because THEY decided
    it was unimportant (by not employing any initiative of their own to pick a
    valid newsgroup). Some users' threshold is down at 3, and some even down to
    2 (i.e., they don't believe cross-posting is ever applicable). The more
    newsgroups you add, the more likely that your post is off-topic to some of
    them. There are some newsgroups that are duplicates of each other, like
    microsoft.public.outlook and microsoft.public.outlook.general, so including
    both of them is okay.

    The more groups you add, the more likely your post is off-topic or will
    irritate other posters due to your excessive cross-posting. Once you get 4,
    or more, groups listed, it becomes very likely that they are UNRELATED
    groups. My recollection of netiquette is that 4 groups, or more, is
    considered excessive. It might be more than 4 groups but my experience
    shows that when they reach 4 then one of the groups is unrelated to the
    others (of course, not always true but a typical experience).

    Seriously, this is a Microsoft forum. You cannot really expect them to
    understand 'posting etiquette' now can you? In any case, here are a few more
    useful (informative) sites regarding 'posting etiquette".

    That checkbox comes and goes depending on what timezone you select.

    When yours (GMT+11, apparently) is selected, the checkbox is gone; pick
    another timezone and it will come back.

    Top-posting is default behavior in MS newsreaders and is the accepted
    convention when posting in MS public newsgroups.

    PS: Bite me!

    Yes, it is the default behavior of the 'newsreader' being employed in
    the MS newsgroups. That simply goes to show how poorly Microsoft
    conforms to accepted RFC specifications. Is it any wonder that Microsoft
    is continually losing market share to FOSS which does conform to
    accepted standards.
