[texworks] MiKTeX 2.9 forces UTC on Windows 7

I just installed MiKTeX 2.9 on my machine, after my IT people installed Windows 7 (long story why they aren't ready for 10 yet...).
All is well, but there is some time zone setting it's using which is not what I have in the system.  All times come out in UTC, five hours later than my EST zone.  Here's a stripped down minimal example:

\divide \value{hrs} by 60

This should print out the hour, which at the moment is 12 (EST), but instead I get 17 (UTC).

            Thanks for any help you can provide.
