Cannot open User Accounts control panel!



Hi fellow XP'ers,

I have recently re-installed Windows XP pro after getting a new motherboard. However, since doing so, evrytime I try to get into the User Accounts category in the control panels I get the error - "Windows Cannot Open The User Accounts Control Panel". I can get to users & groups through MMC. I have 2 accounts - admin and myself. I want to re-enable the multiple users logon screen, as at present it defaults to the old Win2K style username and password logon.

Any help on this would be appreciated.

MadMac ;)


Have u tried looking in Services i cant remember what the service is called (Windows Welcome log in) summat to do with that :D

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
