Environment:  Dell PowerEdge T300 running Windows Serve 2008 Standard SP2 x64.

I recently added this machine as an additional Windows Domain Controller into the existing AD domain, and after adding it as a DC, in the User Accounts settings (Start->Run...->control userpasswords2) there were a lot of users listed I want to remove.  Now, if I select one and click "Remove", the User Accounts window hangs ("(Not Responding)"), and I have to force quit it.  Any idea what is causing this/how to stop it from hanging?

promo went smoothly - this is several days after the addition to the domain.

Domain is at Win 2000 Native funtional level, if that matters at all.

Just went ahead and bit the bullet and did the Force Quit all those times.  This can be closed.
