    SpotLight search for:

    preferences.plist

    Remove the plist to your Trash but don't empty yet.

    Log out/back in or reboot and see if that fixes things. :dive:

    Try this, from the Go menu, choose Go to Folder.

    Type:

    ~/Library/Caches

    Click Go.

    Drag the file named "com.apple.preferencepanes.cache" to the Trash.

    Specs:
    12" Apple PowerBook G4 (1.5GHz)
    Open (your hard drive): System: Library: Preference Panes

    Is "Accounts.prefPane" there?
    If so, double click it and see what happens.

    If not...man, are you having a bad day!

    Specs:
    MacBook
    Follow this file path:

    /Users/Home/Library/Preferences/com.apple.systempreferences.plist

    Remove the file "com.apple.systempreferences.plist" from that location.

    Reopen your System Preferences after you have removed the file.
    The Accounts pane should return upon reopening your System Preferences, then.
