    Hi Nate2,

    Welcome to the Forum.

    Is there a particular Service you are attempting to start when this error is triggered?

    1079 is in essence implying a Service is attempting to start with Local System authority, when in fact it needs to be started by NT Authority/LocalService which is one step up the hierarchy chain in terms of privileges.

    If it is a particular service you ought to be able to be able to Start > Run > services.msc then locate the Service and open its properties and select its Log on tab and manually change from Local System to NT Authority\LocalService, then <optionally> include password access or not - <your preference>
