Active Directory selections in administrative tools corrupt

Evey time I select any of the Active Directory choices in Administrativr Tools on my DC I get the the Windows message that "The application has encountered an error and needs to close".
Everthing works fine on the other Domain Controller.  I can access things fine if I run MMC from the run command but why can't I access it from Administrative tools?

Probably a corrupt MMC either re-install the adminpak.msi or create a new MMC snapin and overwrite the one that isn't working.

Well, I tried copying the MMC.MSC from the good DC and replacing the the bad one but it still did not work.

Has Powershell sent you back into the Stone Age?

If managing Active Directory using Windows Powershell® is making you feel like you stepped back in time, you are not alone.  For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why.

Scan the server with updated antivirus.

I am guessing from the authors last comment the re-installing the adminpak sorted it out?
