    Is this coming from a Saved Query, if so, provide the query filter syntax.  If not, exactly when does the error occur?

    Author Comment

    Its not from a saved query, it comes up as soon as the tech starts up the admin tools on thier workstation and they can't view anything down from the domain contanier itself.  They say it was working a couple days ago.
