  • Sure, you can do this like you change the user account for any other Windows service.

    Start Administrative Tools -> Services

    Find the "TFS Integration Service" in the list.   Right click on that service and choose Properties.

    Click on the "Log On" tab and enter a different user account and password.

    Restart the service for the new user account to be used.
