Hmm ok this may help however the article reads...

"To resolve this problem, configure the startup account of the SQL Server service to use the LocalSystem account. Alternatively, use a startup account that has the full name of the domain account instead of a period (.) to start the service. For example, use the startup account DomainName\UserName to start the service."

Where and how do I configure the SQL Server Service? I can't see it listed in Services?
