The specified module could not be found. User Accounts

This is a "fresh" install of Windows Media Center.

I did it directly from the recovery DVD, system is up to date.

I was trying to change the way users log in to the computer and I get a message box.

Title: User Accounts
Message: The specified module could not be found.

With an ok button.

I get the same message if I click on the users main window on the links, User Accounts, User account types and Switching types.

Any idea is welcome.

Thanks.

I found this potential solution, let us know if it solves your issue:  
http://windowsxp.mvps.org/useraccerror.htm

Also, look to the possibility of a corrupt install since this is a "fresh" install.  Have you ever used this disk before without errors?

I also found that solution, but I don't know the website, so I don't know if the file is safe.

Do you trust this website?

And yes, I have used this disk before.

Ok, I downloaded and executed the file but it's not working.

I get an error message from Windows Script Host.

Line 11

I have a solution:

Start run > cmd

go to c:\windows\system32

run following commands:

regsvr32 -i -s "wshom.ocx"
regsvr32 -i -s "jscript.dll"
regsvr32 -i -s "scrrun.dll"

and ready!!!!

Before running the script you suggested I right clicked on it and click edit.

I wanted to see what the script was going to do.

When I executed the file and got the error I decided to do the same thing the script was going to do by hand.

So, there you go.
