G'DAY TEAM! CAN ANYBODY TELL ME WHY I AM GETTING AN ERROR NOTIFICATION: # 0x80004003
AFTER I OPEN A USER ACCOUNT ON MY COMPUTER?

THERE ARE THREE ACCOUNTS. ONE OF WHICH OPERATES SATISFACTORILY. HOWEVER, AFTER I ENTER EITHER OF THE OTHER TWO AND SELECT THE "START" ICON ON THE WINDOWS TASKBAR, I FIND THAT IF I ATTEMPT TO SELECT AN ITEM FROM THE START BOX POP-UP MENU THE ACCOUNT LOCKS UP AND THE ABOVE ERROR MESSAGE APPEARS. IAM THEN REQUIRED TO USE CTRL-ALT-DELETE TO ESCAPE FROM THE ACCOUNT.

I HAVE FOUND THAT GOING INTO THE ONE OPERATING ACCOUNT AND SELECTING "MY COMPUTER" I AM STILL ABLE TO ACCESS THE FILES IN THE "LOCKED" ACCOUNTS.

IF YOU CAN ASSIST ME, I WILL PROVIDE YOU WITH AN IOU FOR A HUG AND A KISS TO BE EXERCISED AT MY DISCRETION. :thumbsup:

Did these accounts ever work and if so, when did they stop working and why?

Which version of XP?

Well, it appears there is something corrupt in the software somewhere. Trying to track down the exact cause will be difficult. I think you have a couple of choices here:

1) what happens when you create a new account? Go ahead and try it. Does it work alright?
Start > control panel > user accounts

If so, then delete one of the bad accounts. When deleting you will be given the option of saving that users data. Do so, and direct Windows to save the data in the new account if given the option.

If the above procedure works, then do it again for the second defective user account.

If no success:

2) try a Repair install of Windows. Insert Windows CD. Reboot computer. Allow the computer to boot to Windows CD. When prompted choose "Install Windows" at the first opportunity. Then at the second opportunity choose "REPAIR" (which is hitting the R key). Then let windows do a repair install. Theoretically this will not affect your data or programs, but I suggest making full backups first anyway, as backups are never a bad idea.

Also please note: Not all versions of Windows install CDs have the option for a Repair install. Let us know if that is the case in your case.

NOTE: Choosing 'R' at the first opportunity will give you the Recovery Console and this is NOT what you want. You want to choose 'R' at the second opportunity.
