Normally, the permission/access stuff is taken care of by the SquidNet installer. Make sure that the SquidNet service is running under an admin account. Also, check that the SquidNet account is running with the proper permissions.
To check settings and verify that account is setup correctly by doing this: Open security window (run "secpol.msc" from command line) Navigate to "Security Settings->Local Policies->User Rights Assignment"
Check that the SquidNet account is listed under "Act as part of the operating system" and "Replace a process token level" fields.
