Can not add new user

By Vincentej ·
Windows XP Pro is rejecting any additions of user names into computer management. I have tried adding to the local computer, pulling a name from the domain list. Nothing other than the administrator can be entered. What happened or how can this be corrected???

Log on to the computer with an account that has local administrative access. If you are in a domain then you must log on as either the local admin or the domain admin (these are the default local admin accounts).

Alternately if you are in a domain then the administrator has restricted the addition of users to the local admin group.

Make sure when your trying to add a new user that your logged on with the Administrative account or an account that has administrative privileges.
