If you install NTP instead of using microsoft's w32time we'd really be
able to help you. Otherwise you need to take this to a Microsoft news group.

You can install Meinberg's binary NTP kit and it should be simple to
configure and use.

you can use netstat -an |grep "123" from the DOS Command line to get a
short list of ntp ports.
