    Ok so about an hour ago i accidentally erased a system32 file that had the User Accounts on it. The file name was like nursmng. How can i restore that without hopefully downloading anything. I dont want to write over that space. I mean is there a way for me to access the deleted files and restore it from there or am i pretty much SOL.

    Any help is appreciated

    What do you mean that it had User Accounts on it?

    In any case, you would need the whole file name to begin to restore it. Why do you think that you need to restore it?

    Well when i deleted it off the Recycle bin it deleted the entire User Accounts file. Its the User accounts in control panel that allows you to change passwords, manage the accounts, etc. etc.. And i need to restore it cuz i need to be able to access that.

    There is no "XP 2000". Right-click My Computer, Properties, and see what it says for the Windows version under the General tab.

    Do you have an XP CD?
    What is your CD-ROM drive letter?
    Is your system installed to drive C:?

    If its under the General Tab in the properties of My computer then no everything that i posted is all. Except the registration: which has my name and the product number. Then there is the manufacturer which is:
    Compaq
    AMD Anthlon(tm) XP 1700
    1.47GHz, 512 MB of Ram

    Other than that there is nothing else

    Would the sticky on this forum page be helpful at all when going to that site to repair it? I'm not to computer literate when it comes to this. I can do alot of other things but when it comes to repairing i dont know squat

    What drive letter is your CD-ROM?

    Do you have an XP CD?

    Check your Control Panel now to see if it is back. It should be restored automatically from the dllcache.

    Try this. Copy this line:

    copy C:\Windows\system32\dllcache\nusrmgr.cpl C:\Windows\system32\nusrmgr.cpl

    Paste it in the Run box in your Start menu and click OK. What happens?

    It said "Windows cannot find C:\Windows\system32\nusrmgr.cpl. Make sure you typed the name, and then try again. To search for a file, Click the Start button, and then Click Search" It said it for both of them.

    It shouldn't be looking for the file. Did you paste the entire line into the box? Paste it just as it is, with the word "copy" and the whole rest of the line.
