Unable to display the user selection dialog - %1 is not a valid Win32 application

I am trying to set up my laptop to run ASP.NET applications but have run into multiple problems.  I'm using Win XP Pro.  I am having problems updating my database because the aspnet user account does not have permissions to write to the database.  By default XP does not show the Security tab in a folder's properties.  I unchecked the "Use simple file sharing" box and now the Security tab shows up.  But when I try to add a new user to the list this error message pops up "Unable to display the user selection dialog - %1 is not a valid Win32 application".

I can't find anything for this particular error on the web so I'm hoping someone out there in expert land has seen this before.  Thanks.
