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

PROBLEM:
When try to share the folder and give permission rights and try to add any user it prompts with an  Error::
"Unable to display the user selection dialog.  (null)"

Resolution: Referring KB 816818 ,corrected registry

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\SecurePipeServers\winreg\AllowedPaths  

Value: Machine

Type: REG_MULTI_SZ - Multi string

Default Data:

System\CurrentControlSet\Control\ProductOptions

System\CurrentControlSet\Control\Print\Printers

System\CurrentControlSet\Control\Server Applications --> was missing so added it  

System\CurrentControlSet\Services\Eventlog

Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion  --> was missing so added it
