I right click on a folder and select properties, then I select the security tab, then I click the Add button and get the following error message:

          Unable to display the user selection dialog
          (null)

When I startup the users and groups snap-in, every group has only one nameless user in it and if I try to add any users I get the same error message. And this also after installing Service Pack -2 following  are some links I found which explain a little any help I would really appriciate.

                                                    Thanks
