Am I being punished?

So, when you installed Fedora, did you carefully uncheck that little box 
that says "System Clock uses UTC"? Windows does not really understand 
UTC or handle it very well. The solution is to go to the System --> 
Administration --> Date and Time application, click the Time Zone tab, 
uncheck the Clock Uses UTC box, click OK, reboot the machine, go into 
your BIOS and set the hardware clock correctly if need be. That should 
fix things.
