Explanation: The root cause of this issue is still under research, but we believe we can attribute the issue to customers manually applying the time zone updates using the TZEdit application, referring to the steps in KB 914387.
It appears that the registry appears to have been altered by some other means (this part is under investigation but could include not completing 914387 or modifying TZ parameters with TZEdit, or potentially malware detection software). Open the Time/Date control panel applet and changing the time zone to a new time zone; hitting apply, and changing it back to the original time zone will often correct this problem.
This provides confirmation the hotfix was applied, but seems to bypass the aspects involved which prevent the application of the hotfix.
Some of them had to reinstall Steam and CS first though. my MSN and Gaming Help Site: MS Games Help and Support Center: If this is the scenario you are seeing, you can run the following script after the hotfix is applied to automate the process of changing the time zone and ensure that the system runs with update DST2007 rules.followed by running the script above will reliably cause the system to follow the new DST2007 rules.After this, it updates a structure in the system that contains this information as well as send out a WM_SYSTEMSETTINGSCHANGE message to running applications The first problem described above seems to be happing during step #3.
