When you select the User Accounts applet in Control Panel, Windows XP does NOT open it. You may receive an error that is similar to:

Wrong number of arguments or invalid property assignment

1. Open a CMD.EXE windows.

2. Type the following commands, pressing Enter after each line:

Regsvr32 /S jscript.dll 
Regsvr32 /S nusrmgr.cpl 
Regsvr32 /S /i mshtml.dll 
Regsvr32 /S themeui.dll 
Regsvr32 /S Vbscript.dll
