User not appearing correctly in Active Directory
A bit of a cosmetic issue really. When I view users in the OU in Active Directory Users and Computers I notice they appear in the tree list with a plus symbol next to them. If it was acting correctly they really shouldn't appear in the tree list and only in the objects window. The problem is when you double click the user you don't get the properties window but a blank object window. I was just curious as to if anyone knows how to get it working correctly.

If it has a plus sign next to it, this'll be a security group and not an actual user. It doesn't help the fact they use the same symbol/logo which can confusing.

You've got 'view users, groups and computers as containers' turned on
Untick it in the view menu

Thanks for that sidewinder, that sorted it. I knew it'd be a simple untick job somewhere! Easy when you know how as they say!
