Warning
titleService system account

To run builds, the build agent must be started under a user with sufficient permissions for performing a build and managing the service. By default, a Windows service is started under the SYSTEM account which is not recommended for production use due to extended permissions the account uses. To change it, use the standard Windows Services applet (Control Panel|Administrative Tools|Services) and change the user for the TeamCity Build Agent service.
