I am trying to find a tool or 3rd party software that will automatically disable an network account in Active Directory for any user after 90 days of inactivity. Is there a tool and / or software out there than can do this?

MJDevos,

R L Mueller has an excellent site with a vbs script that queries all domain controllers within a domain to find the last logon date/time of all users in that domain.  I'm sure you could add a bit to the end of the script that would compare the last logon date/time with the current date/time to see if 90 days has passed and disable the account if so.  The Technet script center has a sample script for how to disable an account with vbscript.

Here's the link to R L Mueller's script:

Hope this helps,

It sounds like you need the latest version of Windows Script installed:
