How to find which list is causing this error.

Hi,

We use Sharepoint 2007 Moss.  At the root site when I log in as System Account I see this error message on top.  How can I find where or which list is causing this error?  There are many sub sites and lists under this root site so I really need more information on how to locate the problem list.  Thank you.

One or more field types are not installed properly. Go to the list settings page to delete these fields.

I'd take a look at the Diagnostic logs first.  Default location is program files/common files/microsoft shared/web server extensions/12/logs
DId you recently add/remove any solutions from the farm?

No, I haven't modified solutions form the farm.  However, someone has added a new welcome page and using that gives that error as soon as we log into the root site.  Do you know who would have the permission to add someone as a site collection admin?  Is it the root site owner can do that?  

I also looked into the log files area, C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\12\LOGS\2a08c1f5-860b-49cb-85ec-e7edb9d78223
However, in there I found folders dated 7/14 and 7/15.  I log into the root site and there was no recording of any log file for that 7/15 folder so I think the error is generated during the welcome page loadup.  Apprarently the log doesn't record any error for the page load up.
thank you.
