w32time service missing

I have been having time synchronization problems ever since our power went out for a long period and the servers were not gracefully shut down.  In my attempts to correct the time issues, the computer I was using as the ntp server is now missing the w32time service completely.  Is there anyway to reinstall the service?

    Try reregistering it.

    w32tm /unregister

    w32tm /register

    net start w32time

    Look for the W32Time service as WINDOWS TIME service...

    It is very doubtful that the computer is missing the WINDOWS TIME service...this is a default service that is part of the OS.

    Thanks so much... that worked perfectly.  I was about to panic since I am having enough trouble with the time issues anyway.
