I'm using Windows XP sp3 with all patches installed.
Whenever I make a change in msconfig I get "An access denied error was returned while attempting to change a service. You may need to log on using an adminstrator account to make the specified changes", but the changes are still made.
I also get "Operation could not be completed" if I try to start the add printer wizard from the printers folder.
I am desperate to install a printer and suspect that these two errors are somehow related.
I have scanned as a slave drive for viruses and also with the pc booted up.
Any help is appreciated.
