On a WinXP SP3 laptop, any time I make a change in msconfig, I receive the following error:
An Access Denied error was returned while attempting to change a service. You may need to log on using an Administrator account to make the specified changes.
The user account I am logged on with is an administrator account, but is the fact the username is not "administrator" causing the problem?
The changes are saved; though the errors occur whenever I hit click Apply or OK. I don't receive similar errors any other time I make software/hardware/OS changes.
Update: the error occurs with either Startup items or Services. All of them generate the error. Services.msc shows the majority of services have Log On As "Local System"; the rest are "Network Service". These are the only entry types under Log On As.
