I was in the same situation as you when I first took over my current account. The local permissions to the users were given like freebies, leading to tons of issue.

To solve this issue, my suggestion is to make use of IDEAL Administration by PointDev. There is a built in function to read information from the systems and format it to MDB format. Just few simle click, I have a MDB with all the user rights on all the machines in the domain.
