Internet Explorer Script Error (User Accounts page)

I created a new account on my Windows XP Home Edition machine and made it a Computer Administrator account, changing the current one to a limited user account.

In the new account, I wanted to change the older account back to Computer Administrator and the User Account wouldn't open displaying a dialog box with title Internet Explorer Script Error with details:

*******************************************************

An error has occured on the script on this page.

Line:
Char:
Error:
Code:
URL:

Do you want to continue running scripts on this page?

Yes | No


******************************************************

Could I have any help on what has happened and what I can do?

Thanks.

If you don't come up with a simpler fix, you might want to consider using this
tool.

Quoting from the article listed below, "SubInACL can also help resolve Internet
Explorer script errors caused by incorrect access control permissions for
specific user accounts on the system."

Solving setup errors by using the SubInACL tool to repair file and registry
permissions

Meanwhile, you can elevate your old account to administrative status by doing
the following,

Go to Start -> Run and enter cmd.exe in the Open box.
At the command prompt, enter the following command substituting the correct
account name for where you see OldAccount,

net localgroup administrators /add OldAccount

Good luck

Thanks for the advice, but I wondering if the "SubInACL" solution would work on my system since I couldn't find the folder Windows Resource Kits. Is it not for a Windows Professional system?

And on the download page, Windows Home Edition wasn't on the list of system requirements.

But i'm moving on with it.

I also tried the command prompt solution but it brought back an error message with there isn't such a user.

I've got a solution, well one that helped me, I actually tried the option of using the SubInACL procedure, which I found recommended by many other sites I visited.

I did and went through the process but I still had the same problem. I wasn't able to also change the limited status of the account of my old account using the net localgroup administrators /add OldAccount to add it to the administrator accounts.


My solution
-----------
So I chose to try another option I read in other forums, which was to uninstall IE7 and I did exactly that and there I was smiling :) cos it worked. I've been able to change my account back to the computer administrator. So thats another solution should any one come to have this problem.

I'm still grateful for the suggestions made available by Nepatsfan and Andrew E. thanks for the help...

Re: Internet Explorer Script Error (User Accounts page)

Open a command prompt window, Start -> Run -> cmd.exe.
Enter the following command,

net user

Does your old user account show up in the list of accounts on your computer?

Enter this command,

net localgroup users

What accounts are listed as being members of this group?

Re: Internet Explorer Script Error (User Accounts page)

Glad to hear you were able to fix the problem. I posted a response before
checking this thread so you can ignore it.
