The account privilege 'Logon as a service' is needed.
In the servicemanager you can set 'Interact with the desktop'. This is not needed.

Thanks for the quick responses.  

' interact with desktop' is set on the service, are the others group policies set on the account?  I didn't see those settings on the AD Users and Groups properties for the user account.  

If it is group policy, I am pretty new to that.  Can I attach a policy to a specific user?  I've seen some things that recommend moving the user into a new OU and setting the policy there - is that what I need to do?
