Problem with user account in Win XP

  czechmate1976 17:32 23 Sep 2006

I have a problem with opening up the user accounts on my laptop. I have Win XP Media edition and any time I try to change my user account detail, I can't because it won't simply open up... Can anyone please offer any advice that might sort it out? Thanks

have you tried starting in safe mode [hitting f8 as the pc starts to load windows] the other thing could be that your account does not have admin status and you need to change to admin to change things.

I am the only user and actually I only wanted to set up an user account, however, as I said
, it won't open at all. It shows the clock with the cursor as if it starts up but then nothing happens. I haven't tried the F8 trick yet but I don't think it will help. There must be something wrong in the windows though I have recently reinstalled it from the scrach. thanks for your advice! Any tips are very welcome.
