I recall there was a protection issue with some of the NTP files, but I 
can't find my notes at the moment.  Check in the Event Viewer for the 
error message.  If it happens about one hour after NTP starts, it might be 
NTP trying to write the drift file. I would simply make the NTP directory 
completely open.
