when you hit "start" on User Profile Sync, it will ask you for the password of a certain account.  That account must be a local admin (to start the service, can be removed after) and a farm admin.  if you had to add the account as a local admin, you must reboot, then try to start the service again.

1. the account you are logged into the server with, should be a local admin and a farm admin.

2. when you hit "start" on User Profile Sync service, it asks you for the password to a certain account, that account (it will be greyed out) needs to also be a local admin on the sharepoint server and a farm admin.

Is this a farm install?  or did you do a basic stand alone install?  user profile syncs only work in a farm environment.
