Symantec Backup Exec Services won't start

I have Symantec Backup Exec 11d, a new install installation of Eset Remote Admin/console, and a reset of the administrator password.  At some point, the last two caused the services to stop on Symantec.  Symantec utilizes the domain admin as a service account.  I think I need to change that.  Backup user account? Did Eset new installation have any conflict in this matter?  I shut off the Eset service and try to start Symantec.  This did not do anything.  I've attached a list of services that should be started but do not.

I would imagine it's more likely to be the reset of the administrator password that's caused the issue. If you go into services.msc and find the services in question, right click, select Properties, then the Log On tab. If 'This account' radio button is selected and the account is the administrator account, you'll need to change the password there to the new one

Found it.  The SQL service for backup also lacked the correct service account credentials.  It's back on
