I am trying to log into Reporting Services and I keep getting the following error: User 'LTompkins-PC\LTompkins' does not have required permissions. Verify that sufficient permissions have been granted and Windows User Account Control (UAC) restrictions have been addressed.  I am the administrator of the machine and I installed SQL Server.  
I have looked at Reporting Services Configuration Manager and have checked all of the setting against another machine where I can get into Reporting Services
I have  also checked the User Account Control settings on both machines and they are the same.
Is there another setting that I may need to change?

This doesn't mean that you have full control to SQL Server. Add your windows account into SQL Server and assign sysadmin privileges to that account.

>> I have  also checked the User Account Control settings on both machines and they are the same.

Kindly confirm whether UAC is disabled on the system by following the below steps:
1. Open Control panel -> System and Security -> User Account Control Settings
2. Change the User Account Control to never notify and Click Ok.
3. Restart the system now and try accessing SSRS reports.

Also make sure that your windows account has full control over the SQL Server installation folders once.

The Windows account had  sysadmin privileges and once I set the UAC to never and restarted the computer, I was able to get into Reporting Services.  Thanks
