Are you logged on as an Administrator?

What happens when you go to start,run. and type in "control" then click ok?

does it open up admin?

no i wasnt logged in as admin - the actual control panel does open but nothing in it is accessible - also desktop icons wont do anything at all ??

using the c:\windows\system32\nusrmgr.cpl that i posted are you able to enter and create a new account name to see if control panel would be accessible from account.

Sorry but this does not give me the impression you had a clean formatt and install.Did any thing appear to have a hic-up as you installed XP?

i did have hiccup installing yes so what i have done is reformatted again and done another install - which ran smoothly im hoping fingers crossed it will solve the problem ill keep you informed thanks in advance :)
