    I'm trying to add a new user account to my Windows XP machine. However, When I use the User Accounts tools I can't add a specific name. I've had this username on the machine before, but deleted it a long time ago. I must have erased something else by accident too.

    I thought it could get to it from Computer Management tool, but when I expand the Local Users and Groups I get, Unable to access the computer ********. The error was: Invalid Syntax.

    Any suggestions?

    I found this on http://www.x-setup.net/forum/archive/index.php?t-582.html.
    I double-checked my ADS with XPLite 1.7, per his resolution, and it's enabled.

    Maybe this new information can give a better idea of what's going on.

    Thanks for any suggestions.
