I know what is happening.  I just now need a way to fix it.  It is only crashing when the method below occurs.  I call this in the masterpage page_load and it highlights the current page you are on in the menu in a special way.  I think I just need to strip out the querystring.  


  Public Sub SelectMenuItem(ByVal Items As MenuItemCollection)

    For Each objItem As MenuItem In Items

      If _FoundSelected Then Exit Sub

      If Page.Request.PhysicalPath.ToLower() = Page.MapPath(objItem.NavigateUrl).ToLower() Then
        objItem.Selected = True
        _FoundSelected = True
        objItem.Selected = False
      End If

      If objItem.ChildItems.Count > 0 Then
      End If


  End Sub
