Tomcat 6 not available to outside world when installed as a service

Hi, just installed Tomcat 6 on a Windows XP machine and opened port 80 for communication. When I start tomcat on the command line using start.bat, the service comes up fine and I can connect to it from other machines. When I install it as a service, it comes up fine but it is no longer accessible from the remote machines (I can see the tomcat 6 spash page locally).

Any ideas what I am doing wrong ?
Thanks!
Clare
