msconfig error message

When I remove something from the start menu in msconfig - which I check out if need or not - received message "an acces 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.
What is strange I am the administrator and the only one that has access to this computer - when I do a restart - the program is removed - seems alittle strange -
Thanks for any replies.

When you say remove,do you mean disable?

What exactly did you disable?

You are better off doing this in services,start>run>services.msc

Your choice of the 4 ads...

In reply to: msconfig

and your choice too of the long list of Services enumerated in the actual body of the page.

HINT:

The body of a linked resource is generally more productive than the ads placed on the page and labeled as such.
