User Accounts applet background is in White even with XP Theme enabled

When you open the User Accounts applet in Control Panel, the applet background may be displayed in White color (as opposed to the Blue background) even with Windows XP Theme is enabled and Themes service running. This happens due to missing registry values. Fig 1 is the normal screen, and Fig 2 illustrates the problem.



Type these commands from Start, Run dialog:

regsvr32 /i mshtml.dll

regsvr32 themeui.dll

Restart Windows.
