I have a system driver that's registered in the Registry under "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\MyService. I normaly set the start mode to 3 and manually start the service after the system boots up with "net start MyService. " This works fine as long as I log in as Administrator, but if I log in as a user, I get an Access Denied error from net start. Why is this? I don't see anything in the net start documentation that says you have to be administrator to use it, and all of the directories in the path to my .sys file and the .sys file itself allow reading and execution by users. The .sys, by the way, is in C:\WINDOWS\System32\drivers.
Thanks for any help.
