Make Windows use a realtime clock

First off: Markus Kuhn's classic rant about windows storing the time in local time instead of UTC and why it's dangerous and downright moronic.

Solution:
Create a DWord called RealTimeIsUniversal under
HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\TimeZoneInformation
and set it to 1.
Beware that there are issues which Markus Kuhn details and that you should be aware of.
