It can be caused by a bad CMOS battery, it sync with the wrong NTP server (time server) because you set it to the wrong time zone. I will take a bet at a bad CMOS battery.

There was also a bug in Norton Internet Security that caused this a while ago. If you have Norton you may want to research that.
