I might even take the view that "your illustrious IT droids" aren't doing 
their job properly if they aren't taking an interest in timekeeping to the 
extent of replacing W32Time by NTP in their standard install procedure! 
<G>  Perhaps timestamps of actions aren't critical your organisation.  I 
hope you may be able to convince them in due course.

Having said that, I've not seen W32Time causing a crash, but my first step 
might be to rename the appropriate branches of the registry to try and 
make W32Time recreate them from scratch.
