  • SCMan, access is denied


    I have a Limted account, that when logging in, I get a small warning
    "SCMan, access is denied" followed by "Can't open Service Control
    Manager". If I change the account to an Administrator account I no
    longer get the warning. Any ideas of the cause and how to get rid of

    It either the legitimate utility someone has installed into your startup folder, or it been put there by a virus.

    Run a full virus\ adware\spyware scan.

    If these do not solve your Issue check your startup folder, if you are on XP then use MSConfig to check run items.

      Recommendation: User's choice - depends whether a user deems it necessary

      Recommended Software: AdwareAlert Spyware/Adware Scanner (Free Scan)
      Clean out your computer with AdwareAlert. It eliminates Pop-ups, Toolbars, BHOs and other pests that slow down your computer to a crawl. Some of these things may even spy on you. Unfortunately most antivirus software don't detect these. Download the Free scanner to find out if your computer is infected. Millions of people are already using AdwareAlert to defend their privacy, and stop those annoying ads.
