11g On Windows 7

I've just installed 11g on Windows 7.  I want to go into SQLPlus and do a few things but I'm getting ORA-12560 tns:PROTOCOL ADAPTER ERROR.  I look in services and see listener is automatic and running.  From the command line i try lsnrctl command and get message TNS-01190 The user is not authorized to execute the requested listener command.  
I'm in an administrator account.  Is there something else i should be a member of in Windows?

>>ORA-12560 tns:PROTOCOL ADAPTER ERROR

This is normally because the databsae service is not running not because of the listener.

>>From the command line i try lsnrctl command and get message TNS-01190 The user is not authorized to execute the requested listener command.  

Local admin or domain admin?  Oracle really doens't like Domain Admin accounts.

True the database service is not running.  I'm wanting to go into SQLPlus from command prompt and startup mount.  No, it's not a domain admin.

In Windows, the Windows service has to be running.  A running service does not mean the database is started.

Starting the service wilstart thehe database.

Ok, gotit.  Start up the service, then go into SQLPlus, shutdown the database and startup mount :-) :-)
Thanks
