How to stop Windows 7 from changing BIOS time

Last response: in Windows 7

I like to keep my BIOS time set to UTC, which works perfectly with Linux, but whenever I log into Windows, the displayed time is UTC even though I have set the timezone. When I change the time manually or with synchronization, it changes BIOS time itself instead of simply using it as a base for localtime.

How can I make Windows 7 know that my BIOS time is UTC and that I want to use that as base for localtime?

There is a registry hack you can do. I do it since I run OSX and Windows 7 on my PC. The time used to really make me mad. Here you go, it works like a charm.
