I installed Ubuntu 14.04 LTS as a dualboot next to windows. Everything is working fine and i must say i like it. But i have one problem, I can't access the User Accounts. By clicking on User Accounts the screen goes black and grey and nothing happens. I can only use the X to close the window. I also tried to access it using the terminal window but the same negative result. How can I fix this ?

Seems my issue was to do with an Empia USB TV capture card with em2860 as chip ID. Unplugging the card was enough to fix the blacked-out hanging user accounts window! Kernel wierdness beyond my comprehension and expertise apparently going on...
