Default Win7 V. Ubuntu time issue

So I've had Ubuntu working on the computer just fine for 9 months. I partitioned the HDD and added a copy of Win7, and now there's a time issue:

When I boot, and check the BIOS time, it shows the time correct in relation to my current time zone. I boot to Ubuntu 9.10, and it's the same. Now I boot into Win7, and the time shows as 5 or 6 hours ahead (roughly GMT, if I'm not mistaken). Now if I adjust the Win7 time and have a server automatically sync it, it screws up my BIOS clock, and in turn screws up the GRUB loader, showing it the last time the drive was accessed was in the future. BIOS is on an ASUS M3A78-EM board (AMD).

My question here, is there a patch from either OS that would fix this issue?

Thanks

When you fix the time in windows, are you just manually fixing it or have you made sure your timezone is set correctly?

Both time zones are configured correctly (in Ubuntu, and in Windows 7, CST with DST active). I actually load Win7, open up the time options, and manually sync it to the time server, and it comes back correct. Ubuntu has been correct since day one.
