Well then the ntpd program written into MY Windows CONTROLLED by the
program represented in the attached image....

It says it is a Monitor, but it ALSO controls how NTP works on MY machine...

It keeps my computer as accurate as can be expected considering I'm
using remote server sources and wireless connection to the internet...

I'll worry about compiling my own ntpd, et al. once I decide to run my
own stratum 1 server...

I'm pretty consistently within +/- 4 milliseconds at any given time...
usually < +/- 2 ms.

One suggestion: you may be better off using the "pool" directive and 
allowing NTP to select its own choice of servers rather than using 
potentially overloaded stratum-1 servers.  Perhaps for Windows it won't make 
too much difference.  You'll enjoy making your own NTP stratum-1 server 
whether it be on Windows or on e.g. a Raspberry Pi card.
