The FAQ URL should work for you.

What it is doing, I believe, is telling Ubuntu that the clock is not
set to UTC/GMT.

Most Unix based systems keep the clock at UTC and change the display
based on the time zone values.  But Windows keeps the clock at local
time, even in hardware.

So Windows and Linux keep changing the hardware clock back and forth,
unless you tell Ubuntu that the hardware clock is *not* UTC.
