After running several tests it seems in Pacific Time zone after 4:59PM any changes to an ACT record even though show correct date the Lookup on Edit Date field with value "TODAY" there is no result because if you search on the next day the TODAY will work.
When I changed Region to Bogata and the clock is set at 6:59PM result was found but after 7PM not.
If I changed to 24 Hr format did not help.
I attached windows PNG screen capture of all the Windows 10 clock and region settings.

I just confirmed D-04583 in V19 Update 4 that a Lookup on Edit Date by "Today" with times after 5PM is now working.

Can you check again I updated to V19.1.630 Prem and no longer working lookup by TODAY. This time I can not even find record after changing Times and even time format in long or short. Seems like total not working? Unless I type in the date 3/3/17

It does look like everyone having this problem again is using date format M/D/YYYY
Can you try changing to MM/DD/YYY and rebooting to see if it still has a problem.
If it does can you then change to DD/MM/YYYY (I know this is not correct for US & Canada but will help with testing.) reboot and test again.

It took time by even reboot WIN 10 every time a changed the formate of time. Really only need to close and reopen ACT.
I tried all the Region - Short time formats "MM/dd/yyyy. ect....
I tried all the UTC regions, and even tried changing multiple times form 1am -PM.
Only Way Lookup on Date only field by "TODAY" that worked is if Today is the 3/18/2017 I need to change the ACT field date to 3/19/2017.
It seems this time the problem is worse then when I first reported it a while back and then ACT made the fix.
UTC-800 Pacific PC Time 5PM PC Date 3/18/17 ACT field dated 3/19/2017 Lookup by Today worked
UTC-800 Pacific PC Time 5AM PC Date 3/18/17 ACT field dated 3/19/2017 Lookup by Today worked
UTC-800 Pacific PC Time 5AM PC Date 3/18/17 ACT field dated 3/18/2017 Did not find record
UTC-800 Pacific PC Time 3PM PC Date 3/18/17 ACT field dated 3/18/2017 Did not find record

Many thanks for doing what was requested and your details response. The reason for a requested reboot was to see if registry settings or preference were an issue.
I have tried to reproduce but all working normally on the 3 test machines I have tried on.
I hope someone from Swiftpage will agree to remote to take a look as this seems the only way forward unless they can replicate the problem.

Thanks for doing this testing and posting your results. I requested some further testing in this area, and we've observed the following:
Now that we have identified this issue, it has been logged as defect D-05665.
As a workaround, I'd suggest using date/time fields instead of date fields.

Thanks Gary for digging deeper.
If you can let us know like last time when it's fixed that would be most impressive. A good way to reward the community putting in the time to trouble shoot by having ACT! group tracking Ticket#'s to post when fixed, or have to be a permanent work around.
I restored an old backup to confirm lookup by TODAY on Edit Date (System field) worked. As for my custom Date-field type called StageDate a lookup did not work in finding records. Than I converted field to Date/Time type which Lookup did work. I even worked when I changed Windows times testing the range 12AM-1159PM. When I changed Win Date to Mar 21st, as it should, lookup did not find record.
