    Under Windows 2000, when I reformat the computer, I add administrator user as a network user in the install process. Then, I go in and add local users to the computer. Later on when I want to add network users, it won't let me, the computer just hangs. Any ideas?

    Not much information to go on here, but are you signed on as a network admin when you are trying to add the network users?

    When you say you add the administrator user as a network user, what are you referring to? Are you adding the Network Administrator account to the local PC?

    Are you on a domain and trying to add domain users? Otherwise I'm not exactly clear on what you mean by network users.

    Yes, I am signed on as network admin when trying to add the users. I am trying to add domain users (sorry) after I have already added local users.
