SharePoint 2010 Setup Help needed

SharePoint 2010 Farm SP2 64 bit

In Central Administration I get a Yellow bar  when I click on it I get this

Central Administration : Review problems and solutions :

Category Security (1)

Using highly-privileged accounts as application pool or as service identities poses a security risk to the farm, and could allow malicious code to execute.  The following services are currently running as accounts in the machine Administrators group: SharePoint Central Administration v4 (Application Pool)
SPTimerV4(Windows Service)

Browse to http://SERV013:29261/_admin/FarmCredentialManagement.aspx and change the account used for the services listed in the explanation. For more information about this rule, see "".

Failing Services SPTimerService (SPTimerV4)


I go to this page but I do not know which ones to change


I cleared all but two of the problems  this is the category of security  looking into the other one

just can not figure this one out

Hope this is a simple one

The error itself states that central admin app pool and timer service are running under a domain account that has admin access. Microsoft recommends not to use admin account to run this service. I would say that you can safely ignore this error as there would be no impact on the server or services.

But if you still need this fixed and shouldn't display the error then pls go to

Central Administration home page, in the Security section, click Configure service accounts.

On the Service Accounts page, in the Select the component to update list, select the central admin application pool. In the below drop select the account that doesn't have admin privileges.

If you don't find one, then navigate to register new managed account and add one domain user account.

This fixed itself when I checked today the Yellow bar was gone

It must have needed some time to correct itself.

I did change all the service accounts to use a none admin account
