To appease a 3rd party vulnerability assessment I would like to change what accounts a service uses to run. Its 2003 server  SP1. How would I go about this?  
One of the services in question is MSSQLSERVER, it starts with the administrator account and I need to change it to start with a diffrent one.

Start > Run > Services.msc
Look up your service in the list, right click it, hit properties, select the Log On tab, select "Use this account" and input your username & passwords of choice.
Restart the service and you're golden.
