    You can try this for yourselves on any AD regardless of permissions on the AD:
    This only happens with MMC v2.0 (ie win2k3, xp but not win2k with MMC v1.2)

    Open a new MMC console, add in the ADUC snapin.
    Create a few new OUs and a few OUs deep. Add a few of the OUs which are down
    the OU tree to Favorites (by going favorites, add).

    Save the MMC, close it and open it.
    Now click on some of your favourites.

    What happens is IE presents an error message each time you click on a
    favourite link. It will keep producing error messages for every time you
    click on it until the number of error messages is 1 less than the number of
    OUs deep the OU is located.

    ie if i have an OU which is 5 OUs deep, i will get 4 error messages before
    the OU opens. I have to accept the error, then hit the favorite button for
    that link again, repeating until this happens 4 times.
    If it is 2 OUs deep, i only get 1 message.

    The message is "The specified action could not be completed".

    I'm trying to build a taskpad view, using navigation links with favorites,
    and this version of MMC is broken.

    Or can anyone help me out here?
