Windows Service startup error

I have created a windows service based on a walkthrough in the MSDN
(ms-help://MS.VSCC.v80/MS.MSDN.v80/MS.VisualStudio .v80.en/dv_radcon/html/e24d8a3d-edc6-485c-b6e0-5672d91fb607.ht m
- Creating a Windows Service Application in the Component Designer)

But when I start the service I get a Unhandled
System.Security .SecurityExcept ion and then the Error: 1053 popup.

If I'm quick with the debugger I get an exception on:

if (!System.Diagno stics.EventLog. SourceExists("M ySource")){


System.Security .SecurityExcept ion was unhandled
Message="The source was not found, but some or all event logs could
not be searched. Inaccessible logs: Security."
at System.Diagnost ics.EventLog.Fi ndSourceRegistr ation(String
source, String machineName, Boolean readOnly)
at System.Diagnost ics.EventLog.So urceExists(Stri ng source,
String machineName)
at System.Diagnost ics.EventLog.So urceExists(Stri ng source)
at MyNewService.My NewService..cto r()
at MyNewService.My NewService.Main ()

Any ideas what is causing this? and/or how to fix it.
