For Windows XP Home Edition or Windows XP Professional Edition when Windows XP is not connected to a domain
1. Click Start, click Control Panel, and then click User Accounts.
2. In the Pick a task list, click Create a new account.
3. Type the name that you want to use for the account. Then, click Next.
4. Click Administrator to select the account type, and then click Create Account.

The Add option should only appear if you are on a Domain and logged in as Admin. If you are currently on a domain and not logged in as Admin you will not see this option and you do not have the ability to install new software for this you'll need to speak to your system admin.

In our instance, we created custom groups of users to access shared drives and folders. When implemented, ALL groups and users were removed from the root, and allowed to propagate back down with nothing. Then, the custom groups were added, as well as an administrator account. Still we were getting a 1607 error when attempting to install a Symantec A/V CE 10.0. After a few days, we decided to add back the SYSTEM user, and all worked great. Just my $0.02 because after scouring Google and even Symantec, we couldn't this solution (at the time, anyway).
