    Hello,

    It appears i can no longer access the User Accounts menu in the Control
    Pannel. Whenever i double-click the icon, i recieve the following error
    message...

    "The filename, directory name, or volume label syntax is incorrect."

    This also opens Notepad - which has no text in.

    Is there a way i can correct this problem?

    I am running Windows XP Home - Service Pack 2.

    Thanks!

    I would first scan for a virus and then post back a HiJack this log.
