Windows XP Computer Management - Local Users and Groups error

Windows XP Computer Management - Local Users and Groups error

I opened Computer Management and happened to see that "Local Users and Groups" (under System Tools) had a red X over top of it. After clicking the link, it shows a message saying "Unable to access the computer EMACHINES-PC. The error was: Library not registered." What could have caused this, and how can I fix it?

"You are probably missing the active directory store type library. You can restore it in a few easy steps:

Download RegTLB.exe from here.
Extract RegTLB.exe from TypeLibrary\Release (We'll extract it to the C:\ drive to make it simple)
Open up command prompt and run this command:

C:\RegTLB.exe c:\windows\system32\activeds.tlb

You will get a messagebox saying the type library was successfully created
Local Users and Groups should now open successfully."
