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?

Thanks!

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)
