Yes, I did a re-install today, without the Replace Files Only option, and
everything seems fine. It's not a 100% fresh install as I copied the
existing drift file and loopstats, but the SSL DLL error is gone, and the
drift file and loopstats are updating correctly. The previous install
probably used the System account rather than the new "ntp" account.
This was on Windows 2000 Professional, using the download on your Web site
this afternoon. All seems to be OK.
