Error meassage... Unable to open Tomcat

I installed the latest Tomcat (version 7), When restart my laptop (windows 7), it tries to open Tomcat but give the following message (see the attached file).

Access is denied, Unable to open service 'Tomcat7'

Is this my laptop firewall preventing it from running? What can I do to run Tomcat without turning off my security software off?

Thank you.
