Thanks for replying! 
1) When I installed it I was in Admin user, and installed it with Service 
option. In windows services, "Apache Tomcat" we have an option of starting 
with USER. The service starts and shows me the owner as the "User" and even 
in the Process information from (task Managger) I see "User" as the process 
(tomcat) owner. So yes it starts with the USER I started the service with. 

2) "User" priveledges: The user has read+Execute permissions for the webapps 
folder (changed it also for Aplication folder Tomcat under programs) and 
restarted many times.Still http://localhost does not come up. (I am using 
80, modified server to run on port 80).

3) If I put the "USER" to "Power User Group of XP" everything works.

please help
