Windows 10: "Add someone else to this PC" starts lusrmgr (Local users and groups.. Solved

    "Add someone else to this PC" starts lusrmgr (Local users and groups..


    Pure despair speaking here:
    Win 10 Home on donated HP AiO. No password for MS account (anonymous donor!). Obviously a legal upgrade to Win 10 Home from 7.
    Short description of the problem:
    1. Used Peter Nordahl's Password Reset Tool to activate built-in Administrator account.
    2. Used admin account to have Windows remove the individual user account (C:\Users\owner) including deleting all files.
    3. Create new user account (Settings, Accounts, Other people, Add someone else to this PC).
    4. I get this:
    Click image for larger version. 

Name:	ScreenShot001.png 
Views:	2 
Size:	17.0 KB 
ID:	193328

    Maybe the system was compromised by malware, decide to Reset. DID NOT HELP, the same effect!

    Get the latest, greatest Media Creation Tool from MS, make a brand new flash drive with Win 10 vers. 1803 and install that.

    And wouldn't you know, EXACTLY the same!!!
    I give up for right now. Saturday, beautiful summer weather, take the Mrs. to town ;-)

    By now I am at my wit's end and slightly distraught..

    PLEASE, pretty please, any help will be greatly appreciated.

    Hello eikelein, and welcome to Ten Forums.

    Odd. That link should not be opening Local Users and Groups.

    If you're wanting to add a new account, you could see if a different option in the tutorial below may allow you to for now.
