I am very new to Windows and need help.
I have a Windows 2003 server and there my user account is "windowsuser".
I need to install a software that needs:
1. Privileges to log in as a service.
2. A member of the Windows Administrators group.
I have been told these have been done but wondering, how can I verify these?
Thanks.

TO verify if you have rights to login as service see http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc739424.aspx.

For the admin group, go to start | run, type in compmgmt.msc and hit OK.  Then browse to System Tools | Local Users and Groups | Groups, then double click the administrators group.  You will see the members there.  If there are other groups that are a member of the admin group and you dont see your user account there then check those groups for your account as well.
