What framework allows me to develop applications that interact withthe Windows OS?

P: n/a
I am trying to write a Windows service or console application that
will manage Windows user accounts. In other words, the application
will be interacting with the underlying Windows OS, for example
resetting user passwords, changing language settings, things we
normally do through the Control Panel GUI interface.

What framework should I look into? Windows Management Instrumentation
aka WMI or something else?

Thanks.

Thanks a lot. Have started looking into this framework. Pretty
interesting, and powerful, sometimes scary.
