Trying to create new user and getting remote procedure call error RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm trying to create a new user on my windows 8.1 machine but it's not letting me.

    If i open control panel and go to user accounts there's not even an option to add a new user. It's like it's missing, there si a blank space where the link should be. I can change my current account type, and manage another account (though that takes me to the list of accoutns which shows mine and the guest, but no option to add a new one) or change user account control settings.

    If i open the run menu and type "users" there is a program that shows up labeled "add, delete and manage other user accoutns" but if I click that a dialog pops up with the following message

    I've run sfc /scannow and it says there are corrupt files but that it couldnt repair them and logged them in the CBS.log

  • OK I tried to run sfc /scannow again, and it said files needed to be fixed on a reboot. I rebooted and I can now create user accounts. So never mind, folks!
