In your firewall software, please ensure that both NTPD and NTPQ have both 
incoming and outgoing Internet access allowed.  (Outgoing alone may be 
enough).  Restart NTP.

If that is OK, either check the server list for NTP, or look in the event 
viewer to see any error messages from the NTP application.
