After changing the group policy --> computer configuration on my domain controller I know get the following error message when I try to open Active Directory Users and Computers:

login attempt failed. Contact your administrator to verify that your domain is properly configured and is currently online.

Browse to the %systemroot%\Security directory. Modify the secuirty (permissions) so that Administrators only have full control, not read write modify.  Logoff and log back in, the policies will not be applied because you took you read right away.  This should give you access to AD Users & Computers and you can delete the policy and restore the rights to the Secuirty directory.   You could also install AD Users & Computers on a workstation from the resource kit and remove the policy setting that way.  Good luck.
