ORA-01031: insufficient privileges

You have to check :

1- startup type for the services ( if it’s set automatically )
2- Group to user ( the user should be in ORA_DBA Group )
3 – you can check log on tab in the service properties and set the username and password who responsible about this services and can do it by:

Go to Control Panel -> Administrative Tools -> Services .

Choose oracle services and then
click “properties”. Select the “Log On” tab and note the account that is set to run the service.
