there is version 3 released, and version 4 in development. So I guess, usually you should get v3

Yes in fact you can. Make sure that the W32Time service is running.

Then enter on the shell

w32tm /config /syncfromflags:manual /manualpeerlist:"pool.ntp.org"
w32tm /config /reliable:YES /update
w32tm /resync
