I am logged in as the administrator and am the only user on this computer. While trying to do some printer diagnostics, I ran msconfig and attempted to "uncheck" some of the startup items such as virus checking, zone alarm etc. It let me uncheck them but then when I tried to close I received this error, "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 change."
I am logged on as the administrator. Does anyone have any ideas?

What happens if you try to uncheck only one box? Will it work then?

I am wondering if it has to do with a specific item, or does the same thing happen with any and all items?

I don't know whats going on. I tried your suggestion Albert and now it seems to be letting me make changes with no problem. Thanks for your help.
