Q.  For some reason beyond my understanding of some computer workings I have managed to loose my Time Zones.  How Do I restore Missing Time Zones?

A.  The time zones are important for making sure your PC’s clock runs correctly. The cause of this problem is usually a registry key containing time zone information that is missing. To remedy the problem proceed as follows.

It should be noted that to repair this problem you will need access to another computer running Windows XP. The reason for this is that you will need to export a registry key from this ‘other’ PC to a floppy disk or other back-up media and then Import it into your own machine.

For this reason you should Backup The Registry on both PCs before going any further!! 

1. From another Windows XP Machine click the Start button

2. From the Start Menu Click Run

3. In the Run Dialogue box type: regedit

4. The registry editor will now open

5. Navigate to the following registry key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ SOFTWARE \ Microsoft \ Windows NT \ CurrentVersion \ Time Zones

6. Highlight Time Zone and then Click File on the main Toolbar

7. From the drop down menu select Export

8. The Export Registry Window Appears. Type in a name for the file you intend to Export and save it to a floppy disk (the file size is around 71KB)

9. Now close down the registry editor.

10. Take the floppy disk back home with you and boot up your own pc.

11. Follow steps 1 through 5

12. Insert the floppy disk with your Time Zone exported file on into your floppy drive

13. At step 5 again highlight the Time Zone key then click File on the main toolbar and, from the drop down menu select Import

14. The Import registry File Window will appear

15. Navigate to the floppy drive and locate the Time Zone File and then click on the file.

16. A message should now appear saying you have successfully imported the registry key into the Windows registry.

17. Finally Exit the Windows Registry

18. You should now have your full compliment of time zones.
