    Hi anyone know how to correct an "Access Denied" error for the Local Services ALerter, SSDP and Upnp. The logon is NT Authority\LocalService but they all refuse to start with the Access Denied error. I have another XP machine which hasnt got this problem but have checked all the gpedit.msc security settings and they are the same. I have admin priveleges and am at my wits end trying to solve this one. Can anyone help ?

    I had the same problem on 2000 server , im a bit of a cowboy, but i made an user account on win2K server - called max with Admin rights

    Then also made one on XP machines called max , then logged onto XP box with max account and all is fine :)

    I don't know about alerter...

    But you should DISABLE SSDP and UPnP...they serve no function currently and have vulnerabilities in them that can be exploited

    I sorted it, the answer was to re-install a fresh copy of XP, bit of a pain but nevermind.
