I have a service that starts everytime teh server boots and the login fails because of the password.  i can manually change it and start teh service but it won't stay.  Is there a way to make that change permanent so the service starts when the server is rebooted?  Any help is appreciated.  Thanks

Right click on the service and click properties. Choose the logon tab. On there you can change the login and set it to start automatically (general tab).

When i go into services and right click and go to the lo on tab i canchange the password there and start the service and it starts fine, but the next time the server reboots it's back to square one.  The service won't start untilk i go back and manually retype the password again.  Any thoughts?
