Service Manager Logon

There was an authentication error encountered while trying to start the service.

Possible Causes

This security error is usually caused by using an invalid user name or password. 

It can also be caused by a policy which is preventing the user from having the Log on as a Service privilege.

Recommended Fix

Ensure that the user's name and password are valid and that the account (or one of its groups) is not set as "Deny Logon as a Service".
