So...no, this does not do what you think it does. You're throwing an LDAP query at the DirectorySearcher that is broken; it's looking for all objects with objectClass==user and nothing, which is a syntax error. If you wanted to search based on a username you need to first determine which name is appropriate, which will vary from domain to domain. Do you want the SAM Name, or do you want the UPN? Do you want a list based on last name?

First you need to inject a variable into this whole thing, then you need to modify your filter to specify a username. For instance:
C#
dSearcher.Filter = string.Format("(&(objectClass=user)(samaccountname={0}))",userNameVariable);
