Windows problem. Help!

  1. I have recently been having some odd problems with Windows. It is happening on two different computers, so I suspect a problem with Windows itself, rather than the installation or the computer.

    Here is what happens:
    Create a new user on the computer - Control Panel | User Accounts | Create a new account. The newly created user account then shows up when I select "Switch User". However, it shows up with what I assume is the default picture.
    When I try to put a different picture in I get a message that says "Automation server can't create object." What is the problem, and what is the solution?

    This problem occurs if you unregister the file shimgvw.dll as an attempt to turn Off
    the Windows Picture and Fax Viewer.

    Resolution -

    Click Start, Run and paste in REGSVR32 SHIMGVW.DLL
