How do I get the more hardcore, Windows 2000-like version of the user accounts management in the control panel of Windows XP?  Here is the screenshot of what I want:

The one on my home computer is the bubbly normal Windows XP version.  I don't like it.  Thanks.

That's weird.  The guys at work were able to do it on their computers.  I've googled it and all i came up with is the command you showed in the previous post.

Also right-clicking of My Computer and selecting manage will give you access to a load of advanced settings :)
