Adding and Modifying User Accounts


L

LokiSkoll

I'm having trouble adding a new user account to my Windows XP machine
on an IBM ThinkPad. From my administrator account, if I go through the
control panel the User Accounts file does not appear in the file list,
but all the other typical control panel options exist.

I've also tried from the Run prompt(as admin) - Run: control
userpasswords2 (and Run: control userpasswords) - which does not launch
the User Accounts tool as it should. If I do this when not being
administrator, the tool does run, but obviously I can't operate it
without privelage.

It's as if someone has deleted my ability to control User Accounts.
Anyone have any ideas?

Thanks.

Try to start
compmgmt.msc
on a command prompt with an account with local administrative rights on the
machine, expand System > Local Users and Computers > User.

Note that some NT services must be running in order to have this work e.g.
Workstation.

HTH.
