User Accounts will not let you change picture
When you try to change the picture under the User Accounts section, and this error message comes up "Automation Server Can't Create Object" the only way to fix it is to: Goto Start Then Run And type in: regsvr32 /i shimgvw.dll This will allow you to change the picture.

    Your fix works on XP Pro SP2 completely updated with patches as of March, 2009. The real question is to why shimgvw.dll was not installed or how it got uninstalled.
