This behavior occurs if the account that you are logged on with has only "list contents" permissions on the parent object.
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/305104
Under this scenario, you are unable to read any attributes of the object, even though you can see the object. This prevents Windows from providing information about the object based on the objectClass attribute, such as the icon attribute. You also do not have permissions to perform any operations on the object, such as a Delete command, that requires access to the objectGUID.

RESOLUTION
If you are a member of the local Administrators group on the domain controller, you may take ownership of the object and then grant yourself whatever access rights that you require.


Try this;
Logon on the DC with an account that is member of the 'Domain Admins' group
(the 'Domain Admins' group is by default a member of the Administrators group on the DC. To check this, on the DC, click Start / Run and type: CMD /k net localgroup Administrators)

- Open active directory users and computers
- Click View on the menubar
- check "Advanced Features"
- Goto the UNKNOWN object and open the properties
- on tab "Security" click on the 'Advanced' button.
- Goto tab 'Owner'
- Change Owner to the the administrator account that you are currently logged on with.
- In the Security dialog box, assign Full Control permissions to your account.
