Active Directory Users & Computers only shows 3 tabs for AD objects

Ok,

I have a weird issue. I recently installed admin tools SP2 on a Windows XP Pro SP3 x86 box and all seemed to go well. All my snap-ins within my MMC seem to work fine but for ADUC. For some reason all my AD objects (computers, users, etc) only have 3 tabs that are listed when I right click and select properties. The 3 tabs that exist are Location, Security, and Dial-in. Of course, as we all know, I am missing a lot of tabs and I can't figure out why. I'm a domain admin when I'm using the snap-in and I get all the tabs I'm suppose to be getting when I use the snap-in on other servers/workstations. Could it be something that is corrupted or a dll file that is not being called or is not registered?

I'm not even sure where to begin. And YES, I have Advanced Features checked within my console.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Is this happening on one machine or is it any machine you install the adminpak on

Is this the download you used:   http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=6315

Thanks

this is only happening on one machine. It's definitely not a show stopper but it's driving me nuts that I can't figure this out.

Man on one box that makes it tougher,  did you try installing the tools again. I've never seen only three tabs can understand why it is driving you nuts.

Thanks

it was HIPS that corrupted the install which caused my symptoms. I turned HIPS off and performed a reinstall and all is now well.

Thanks

When you're troubleshooting and you have a single system that strays from the pack and nothing you throw at it makes sense, check your firewall/HIPS/Anti-virus settings.
