  1. I have XP pro with SP2 in my home stand alone pc. I log in as administrator. I go to the security tab of a file and when I click in the Add button to add a user, I get this error: "Unable to display the user selection dialog. (null)".
    Please help me.
    Thanks, :wave:

    Are there any other users setup on the computer? Or is the administrator the only one?

    There are other users setup.
    And thanks for the welcome. I was here a couple months ago and was helped with some virus issues.
    Thanks, :bounce:

    May be related

    When I go to Management, select a user, go to properties, to the 'Memeber of' tab and click on the add button, I get another message: "An error ocurred attempting to create the Object Picker. An error with no description occurred"
    Seems like the error messages are related. But I'm not locked out, I just can't give the permissions that I want to users for a specific file. Any more ideas?
    They are greatly appreciated.
    Thanks, :knock:
