I loaded win 7 Ult on a new PC to be part of a server 2003 domain. For the local machine administrator I created a username of wjohnson (name changed to protect the ignorant). When it was up and running I created a domain user and named it the same thing, with this user having user rights. Now I cannot create or modify any accounts, no matter if I log into the domain or the local machine. The option is not available. Did I do a bad thing by using the same name?

Well, I have this same problem with my Windows 7 Pro. I am the only user (administrator), and I cannot add or modify any accounts through "User Accounts". The option is there, but when I click it, nothing happens.

However, I can add/delete/modify user accounts through the Command Prompt using the "net user" commands.

It's kind of a pain to have to do it in the command prompt, but at least I can do it. I don't know if this will work in your case, but it is the first thing I would try. I've spent countless hours trying to fix the problem so I can add/modify through the User Account interface, but it just won't work. Try the command prompt, and see what happens. :huh:

No go. I ended up reinstalling the OS. I hate this stuff.

All you have to do is go into your Control Panel>User Accounts And Family Safety>Add or Remove User Accounts and create yourself a new User Account.
