If you really want to run your PC on " true"GMT time without worrying about 
the DST problem. (which is what I do) click on the little time stamp in the 
lower left hand corner of your system tray  and choose [GMT] Monrovia ( and 
NOT [GMT] London, etc). The Monrovia setting does not go on DST and won't 
change every 6 months
