Can't Set XP User Account Options--Round 2

  warthog01 17:18 05 Jun 2006

I surfaced this problem a few weeks ago, but never came up with a solution. Perhaps a fresh set of eyes will see it this time?

Whenever I go into user accounts/login options to de-select the Welcome Screen, that option is already un-ticked and I get a window that says"automation server cannot create object."

I've found a couple references to the problem that suggest the following:
Click Start, Run and type REGSVR32 SHIMGVW.DLL

I've done that, and received a message that it has been successful; however I still get the "automation server cannot create object" error message when I attempt to set user account options. Can anyone recommend another option?

Some ideas click here don't know if they apply to your problem but good luck anyway.

Bingo! MS Windows Script 5.6 did the trick.
