This error is also referred to as E_ADS_INVALID_USER_OBJECT
The Cause of Code Error 80005002
Your VBScript contains an incorrect LDAP reference to a user. This is most likely a typing mistake, maybe an extra letter. Check each domain objects in the script.
Check the spelling of your LDAP objects.
Another solution would be to to introduce error correcting code using E_ADS_INVALID_USER_OBJECT for example:
Const E_ADS_INVALID_USER_OBJECT = &h80005002
