    local users and groups missing from computer manag (windows xp home edition)

    I installed XP home edition and it did not ask me for an admin password or any user names. When I go to computer management there is no local users and groups option. How do I get this back?

    Thanks for your help in advance,
    Glenn

    Was this an install from scratch, a repair install, an in-place update?

    Have you tried contacting Dell? With an OEM CD there are any number of customizations Dell could make that might couse problems.
