I suspect that you're logged into a domain and the service is trying to 
use the domain service account for which you don't have access.

I'm not a Windows person, so the above may be a bit muddled.

At any rate, go into the services properties and try running the service 
with your user account and password.

The change is made on the Log On tab by clicking the "This account" 
radio button and filling in the appropriate text fields.

. . . . just my two cents.
