The clock is not normally an issue when dual booting. Are you sure you have
setup the timezone correctly in both environments? To check in Ubuntu run,
in a terminal
and it will show the date/time and timezone.  If it is wrong then you can
sudo dpkg-reconfigure tzdata
to set it up.  Don't know how to do that in Windows.
