This issue has been discussed before in this group, see a thread from 2004
entitled "NTP starting too early in Windows?".
As I said, this is not my PC - it belongs to my mother-in-law - and I can't
change the way it connects to the Internet, which is via some kind of cable
modem supplied by Eastlink, her ISP. My interest was to be clearer about the
startup behaviour of ntp as a service under Windows, and this thread has
been helpful in that respect. It's not a long-term issue for me, just
something I'm playing with during my summer holiday in Nova Scotia.
