In MOSS 2007 I am trying to change the timezone settings per user using the follow link (domain removed):

https://(domain removed).com/_layouts/regionalsetng.aspx?Type=User&Source=

When doing this with any account (including admin accounts), there is an Error: access denied page that comes up.

Anyone know why admin wouldn't have access to change timezone settings?

@SorryProfesser: anything relevant in your ULS or event logs? –  MattB May 27 '10 at 14:29

Every SharePoint site (both top-level Web sites and subsites) can be customized to use specific regional settings that are used as the default regional settings for all users of your site. Individual users can choose to use the default settings set by the site owner or specify their own personal settings.

You must be a site collection administrator or a site owner to change the regional settings for a site.

Do the following on each SharePoint site on which you want to change the default regional settings:

  1. Open the site on which you want to change the default regional settings.
  2. On the Site Actions menu, point to Site Settings, and then click Modify All Site Settings.
  3. On the Site Settings page, under Site Administration, click Regional settings.
  4. On the Regional Settings page, select the settings that you want for this site, and then click OK.
