      Description

      Our documentation guides our windows users to configure MongoDB to run as a local system account (equivalent of an admin permission on the machine).
      http://docs.mongodb.org/manual/tutorial/install-mongodb-on-windows/

      In order to maximize the machine security, we should run as NetworkService.
