  1. You may have a virus or corrupted user files.
    Try this first
    http://www.microsoft.com/security/scanner/en-us/default.aspx

    Still have problems create a new user and try the new account and see if it works.
  2. The link provided and subsequent processing did not clear the problem.

    I get the message when I open the Control Panel and then try to select one of the Categories, like "Network and Internet Connections"

    I can't set up a new user because of the same message when I try to select "Performance and Maintenance".

    I hope you have other suggestions, I can operate the system for email and google searches and such but cannot control the OS responses.
  3. Get the run command up one way or another. Either hit Windows key + R, click start and go to run, or open the task manager with Ctrl+Alt+Del and click file and then new task, but whichever way you do it, get a run command box up..

    Then type

    control userpasswords2

    and you should be able to create a new user.
