Windows 7: User Accounts / Manage Accounts Blank

15 Apr 2010   #1

User Accounts / Manage Accounts Blank

Hello

I have been chasing up an answer to this problem for a couple of weeks now and have found a number of people with same symptoms but no answer which works.

When I go to the User Accouns page the dialog box for the "Choose the Account you would like to change" is blank.

I am an administrator and there are 2 accounts on my notebook - windows 7 professional.

I can view the accounts through the run command, but would like to know why the dialog is empty and what the fix is for this.

I have done a scan for errors - none found.

Done a complete reinstall - Accounts still not visible.

Looking on a variety of forums, this appears to have been happening to XP and Vista prior to Windows 7.

However none of the fixes for XP or Vista work (Some don't even apply).

Does anyone have a solution for this bug?

Thanks

Microsoft has an article on this issue, please read this and try the solutions if you haven't already. Oh yeah, welcome to SevenForums.

Granted... It's for XP but I can't seem to find the Windows 7 version.

Several dialog boxes are blank

EDIT: Here's a fix for the "Windows Features" blank dialog. I figure it might tell you what your problem is as well.

Vista and now 7 in 32 and 64 bit.
 
 

I have no idea why they should have been disabled, but, have you tried this.
Open, through the control panel, Administrative tools and Computer Management. Scroll to "Local Users and Groups" and enable the account(s) again.

Thanks for the responses gents.

Already tried all of those (at least those that apply to windows 7) with no luck.

I do get an error when I try the Regsvr32 jscript.dll

The module "JScript.DLL" was loaded but the call to DLLRegisterServer failed with an error code 0x80004005


When I try the manual registry edit suggested, all values are correct

You could try a repair install but if you've already formatted and done a clean install I doubt it'll work.
