    You mean you were using msconfig and got this message?

    An Access Denied error was returned while attempting to change a
    service. You may need to log on using an Administrator account to make
    the specified changes.

    If you have an HP printer installed, the problem is most likely the
    HPZ12 service.

    The msconfig changes seem to work, but the error message is annoying.

    There is a possibility you will lose communications with your HP
    printer if you want to prevent the error message. This may not be a
    problem if you don't care about the communications or never use those
    HP features that require it.

    You can also live with the message, knowing the changes really worked
    or ask HP and they will usually suggest reinstalling Windows.

    Depending on your comfort level with making system changes, here are
    two workarounds.

    Are you sure you are logged on using the Windows Administrator account ?

    In Windows XP, there are two types of accounts, "limited" and "computer
    administrator". Having a "computer administrator" account is NOT the same
    as the "Administrator" account. In other words, *you* are the user and have
    a "computer administrator" account. There is a user called the
    "Administrator". It is detailed in the link I provided.

    If you don't have any other user accounts created then you are the
    ADMINISTRATOR by default. All XP systems must have actual ADMINISTRATOR
    account (normally hidden unless you know how to get at it) and other named
    individual who is also an administrator but he is normally visible.

    Now if you are the only user then you just go to windows without the startup
    screen unless you also created a password to your account.

    You can stop this darn from starting by going to Start/Run/Msconfig /all and
    then stopping this from Services tab.

    Hey I have the same problem, you need to understand that I have not
    had the problem before
    and I am using the same account I always use, ie the only account ever
    used and it has allways
    allowed me to change msconfig so it's not the account.

    Have you investigated these ideas and see if they apply to you:

    If you have an HP printer installed, the problem is most likely the
    HPZ12 service.

    The msconfig changes seem to work, but the error message is annoying.
    There is a possibility you will lose communications with your HP
    printer if you want to prevent the error message. This may not be a
    problem if you don't care about the communications or never use those
    HP features that require it.

    This type of message can also be cause by some "malware" software that
    have taken over your PC. Use known good ant-spyware tools
    (SuperAntiSpyware or Anti-Malware) and check to see if you have been
    "hit" by some type of "spyware" malware.
