    So...it just says irprop.cpl.

    Nothing else, no actual error message, just a single filename?

    If by any chance there is an actual message, can you repost it, with the exact spelling and syntax?

    To set a password, go to Control Panel, User Accounts.

    Control Panel - User Accounts - Change an Account - Set a Password.

    I think you should be able to follow it from there...

    It relates to the Infra-Red options under control panel. The file must be corrupt or missing for some reason.

    Go to Start - Run

    In the dialog box type:

    sfc /scannow

    and press enter.

    Note the space between"sfc" and "/scannow"

    That runs system file checker, and will replace any corrupt or missing files. You may be asked for your Windows XP CD during the operation.
