Nope, it didn't work. I extracted the file and changed the file name to KB931836.exe. I received the same popup.

Many thanks for the help.
This app worked great for my computer at work. Thanks for the link. (The M$ KB one didn't work, the version didn't match.)

Thank God we're not getting all of the government we're paying for!
Please see this link:
Scroll down to this section: Microsoft Windows 95, 98, ME, NT, 2000, XP (no SP), XP SP1
Follow these steps: (using the program called TZEDIT.EXE) (file is in the attachment)
Microsoft has advised that Outlook users should update Windows and Outlook at the same time. See Microsoft Outlook below.
These no-longer-supported versions of Windows should use the tzedit.exe utility to reset the Daylight Time change dates for your time zone. Here are the instructions, and also links to download tzedit.exe in case you can't find it on your Windows installation CD. Versions of tzedit are available for all levels of Windows, from 95 to XP. Tzedit is compatible with all application software. The alternative timezone.exe utility should not be used, because it is not compatible with some applications such as Lotus Notes.
Using tzedit.exe avoids the need for (risky!) registry modifications described elsewhere. (It makes them for you, correctly, under the covers.)
1. Download and install the correct version of tzedit for your operating system from one of these sources:
* Locate tzedit.exe on your Windows installation CD. (Best!)
* Download tzedit.exe for Windows NT, 2000, XP, 2003 from Microsoft here. When prompted, you should save this on disk somewhere, such as your desktop. Double-click it to run the self-extracting installer program, which by default will install the program into folder C:\Program Files\TZEdit.
* Download tzedit.exe for Windows 95, 98, ME here. When prompted, you should save this on disk somewhere, such as your desktop. Double-click it to run the self-extracting installer program, which by default will install the program into folder C:\Program Files\TZEdit. This version is intended for Windows 98, but has been found to run fine on Windows 95 and Windows ME as well. (Note: This is a copy of Microsoft's original tzedit.exe for Windows 95, 98, ME which we have downloaded for you because that particular server at Microsoft seems to be swamped much of the time.)
State of Indiana only: You should perform the steps at Indiana Note below, at this point in the process. Then come back here.
3. Start up the tzedit program by double-clicking tzedit.exe.
4. In the "Windows Time Zone Editor" window, the time zone you are editing should be highlighted. For instance, for Chicago it should be "(GMT-06:00) Central Time (US & Canada)". (Note that tzedit only edits the settings for a time zone; it does not put any time zone into effect. You do that via Control Panel.)
5. Click the Edit button.
6. In the "Edit Time Zone" window:
* Make sure that Automatically set Daylight Saving Time is checked.
* Change the Start Day to Second, Sunday, March, 02:00:00
* Change the Last Day to First, Sunday, November, 02:00:00
* Don't change anything else. Click OK and Close to finish.
If this computer is moved between time zones, such as a laptop that is carried between Chicago and New York, repeat the above changes within the tzedit program for each time zone your computer might visit.
7. Do not skip these remaining steps, or your new changes will not take effect.
Click Start --> Settings --> Control Panel --> Date/Time --> Time Zone (tab)
8. Select some other time zone besides yours, i.e. any time zone other than (GMT-06:00) Central Time (US & Canada). Click Apply.
9. Now select your time zone again, i.e. (GMT-06:00) Central Time (US & Canada). Click OK.
Download that, install it and choose the DST fix from the drop-down menu. apply and done.
Worked like a charm. It was easy and quick. Thanks for the link.
