Have you considered running one of the time clients on your linux, and
syncing off a time server that suits your need as a more final solution.
When my box was regularly dual booted, this hour difference came in
regularly, and I would simply run a hwclock command (hwclock -hctosys)
to sync linux, as windows kept the hwclock pretty straight, but linux
was always adding or subtracting an hour. 

One can disable daylight saving in windows, and there is a registry
