I Don't Do Windows (tm) but, if I understand you are writing a user
control and display interface to the system clock. Install the existing
NTP client as part of your install process, and let it handle ntp
correctly, which is much more complictaed that just getting the time
from some server. Then you can worry about the user interface part.
