cannot access AD tools after installation

I have a dc in one of our child domains that has a problem I've never seen before. The administrator installed Quark Licensing on the server (at least thats the last event he remembers happening). Since then when you try to go to ADUC or any other AD tool you get a "library not registered" error.
He has uninstalled the questioned software, ran dcpromo down and then back again, both were successful. The errors are still there. Suggestions?

Re-install the ADMINPAK.MSI from the Windows 2000 Server CD in \i386 directory. This will put back the missing DLLs that ADUC (and others) use.

Cheers

I had the same thing happen to me.  What I did was apply Service Pack 4 and then I removed adminpak from the server, rebooted and then reinstalled adminpak.  All was fine then :)

Same thing happened to me...  Remove and re-install the adminpak.  Once you do that install the support tools off and run "dcdiag" and "netdiag" just to check on the DC as a whole.
