    System error 5 has occurred. Access is denied

    841199
      I just installed Oracle 11g XE on Windows 7. When I try to start using the "Start DB" button, the command window pops up with the following (elipsis added to shorten path):
      --------------------
      ... server\BIN% net start OracleXETNSListener
      System error 5 has occurred.

      Access is denied.

      ... server\BIN % net start OracleServiceXE
      System error 5 has occurred.

      Access is denied.

      --------------------
      Can anyone please explain this error and tell me how to prevent it (or whether I can ignore it)? Thanks in advance
