system error 5 has occured Access is denied

I have a windows 2008 server with SQL 2008.  I have local system account abc which is able to start and stop the service "test" using the services console.  This service does not start automatically.  Dont know why.

I opened a command prompt and type:
net start test
as a result, I get access is denied.  I have also tried:
net start "test"
but i get the same results.

The account is part of local administrators group.  The account is also in the security group of the sql 2008.

How can i get the account to start using the command prompt and not get access is denied?

This is a part of Windows security. You have to execute the Cmd window as administrator: Find out the cmd.exe, right click on it and select "Run as administrator". Then it should work for you.

Yes, I see that if I use that it works, but how can I change it so that I do not have to do that.  The user already is part of administrator.

Thanks

You can switch the UAC off. But it is not recommended due to the security reasons.

To view settings: Control panel - Security - Security center - Other security settings - User Accounts Control

To change settings: Control panel - User Accounts - Turn User Account Control on or off

(hope it same for Vista nad W2008)
