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

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.
