The support issue of a running program was also a concern when we worked on our in-house 
NAC application - not privacy in particular, just device performance. It ended up being a 
run-once utility that users run with admin priviledges. This model doesn't work for users 
who connect to the University's network with 'locked down' laptops (no admin login 
allowed), however. So an agent running as a Windows service is probably necessary to 
provide complete NAC coverage.
