Well, it's VBScript, not VB6, but it translates easily:

Delete account:

Alas, I can't find a most recent update date for user accounts.

In question 2. Code to list computer account updated dates to find old accounts

Would the last logon date and time be an acceptable substitute for account update dates?

If so, and if you can get the value from a command shell command, you can call out the net user command for local accounts.

net user "whateverusername" | find /i "Last Logon"

OR for domain user accounts

net user "whateverusername" /domain | find /i "Last Logon"

Then just parse the strings into the data you want to retrieve.
