I install SQLserver 2005 X64 using a domain account. This account has administrator access to the machine. The installation was successful. However, if I remote desktop to the server and open SSMS and then right-click  and re-start then I get the error below

Unable to stop service MSSQL$CQ2005 on server -- AccessDenied(ObjectExplorer)

I can stop SQLserver by going to services and stop or  restart it but not from SSMS
