For the past few weeks, I have not been able to access functions on my
computer with Windows XP Home Edition. Whe trying to open my User Accounts
folder in the control panel, the folder seems to be empty. All 4 user
accounts show up when logging in.
I cannot utilize my search function or help function either. When clicking
on them, nothing seems to happen.

> You will be able to access user accounts if you type this into the "Run"
> "control userpasswords2" (without quotes of course).
> Then, click on "Add..." button and add one more user account.
> Reboot your system.
> Then see what happens when you try to access User Accounts in CP.
> Even better, I found a link in Microsoft Support that explains all
> about it and I think it should work for you:
> Let me know if you solve this problem.
