The services are standard running as localsystem, so no problems there.
But I don't know how it works with the ownership and privileges of the files.

Subject: Installing Oracle on Windows

It has been several months since I have installed Oracle database software on a 
Windows box.  Typically, I have installed it as the local administrator.  I 
have been asked to install Oracle 10g on a Windows box using my own login 
(which will have administrator rights).  In a few weeks, my login will be 
disabled.  I'm trying to determine if this will cause any issues with the 
database on this box.  I've been searching through the documentation and the 
only guidance I can find is that the install should be done with an account 
that has admin rights.  I want to make sure that this won't leave any processes 
running under by OS account.  I would appreciate any suggestions on this 
subject.  Can I install Oracle under my login or should I have an "oracle" OS 
user setup on this box?

Thank you,
