I have not been able to access "user accounts" in windows xp for some time now. I have run anti virus, spy bot and tried a few other recommended "fixes" I have found online. So far they haven't worked.

I found the following, post on this forum and tried it.
"Re: Can't access User Accounts in XP.

May 6th, 2006
I found a fix at another forum that fixes the User Control error issue:
Open your notepad or word processor and copy and paste the following:

regsvr32 jscript.dll
regsvr32 nusrmgr.cpl
regsvr32 /i mshtml.dll
regsvr32 themeui.dll
regsvr32 Vbscript.dll

Save this file as User_Acct_Fix.cmd on your desktop to easily find it.
Click on User_Acct_Fix.cmd on your desktop to run the program. Now see if the User Accounts are available.
This will re-register the above dll's etc in the registry.
I spent hours looking for 'the' fix, tried out everything everyone suggested, and nothing worked until this one. FYI... and I'm one happy camper "

4 of the five items were registered, but got the following message: "regsvr32 /i mshtml.dll "mshtml.dll was loaded but the DiRegisterServer entry point was not found. This file can not be registered"

Any suggestions?


Firstly, check for missing or corrupt system files (may need a windows cd)

sfc /scannow

Also may want to try reregistering the IE dll's using DialAfix (http://wiki.lunarsoft.net/wiki/Dial-a-fix)
