I just found a workaround yesterday for my winxp hvm guest:


That particular value is -4 hours, which is correct EST daylight savings time, 
and will probably change to -5 hours come standard time,

The other workaround I had been previously using is to sync with another 
computer on your net with 'net'. Eg - in your hvm, type:

net time \\servername /set /yes
