System preferences quitting unexpectedly when creating new user in mavericks

I am auto logging in as the admin on my macbook pro with all software updates installed and trying to create a new user. After entering in a full name, choosing type of account (standard), account name, entering and verifying password with a password hint, I get one of the following errors.
"There was an error in users and groups preference pane." The ok button returns me to the main system preferences window.
"System preferences quit unexpectedly, click reopen to open the application again, click report to see more detailed information and send a report to apple." There are then help, ignore, report and reopen buttons.
I tried disabling auto log in and get the same errors. This machine was purchased a week and a half ago and no third party apps have been installed. I went through system preferences and configured a bunch of options so maybe that has something to do with this?
Any help is greatly appreciated.
