I have an interesting problem.  I am trying to delete a specific computer in my Company Computers container.  When I right click and then click delete I get this message "Object xxxxxx is a container and contains other objects.  Are you sure you want to delete,etc"  I have never encountered this before when I deleted computers from the container.  THe computer in question is no longer attached to the network and has been essentially decommissioned/mothballed.  Is there a way to verify if the computer actually is a container?  Double clicking the icon brings up the computer properties.  Perhaps this is just an AD glitch?  Would appreciate some input from those who are much smarter than I in this matter Please?
