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.
