error occurs: "An invalid argument has encountered" or "Encountered an improper argument"
Client Automation - All versions
This error occurs when there is invalid information present in the registry for the
following subkeys: ColumnFilters, ColumnOrders, ColumnWidths and ListSortings
IMPORTANT: This article contains information about modifying the registry.
Before you modify the registry, make sure to create a backup of the registry
and ensure that you understand how to restore the registry if a problem may
occur. For more information about how to backup, restore, edit the registry,

The impact of deleting these subkeys is only 'cosmetic'.
Whenever a user clicks on a column heading in the DSM Explorer, the output
in that screen will be sorted for that column. The change in sort order is stored
in the registry.
Also when the width of a column is changed in the DSM Explorer, the change
is stored in the registry.
All these changes are essentially cosmetic and if this is reset to the default.
There are no problems when the user logs in and makes changes to the
column width, order, etc.,
