Check out this link:
http://www.experts-exchange.com/Security/Win_Security/Q_21562911.html?query=group+membership+command+line&clearTAFilter=true

Also to dump group memberships you can use:

dsquery user -name youruser|dsget user -memberof

As far as seeing who has access to shares you can try Enterprise Security Reporter by Scriptlogic:

A very nice little, free, utility to accomplish both of these is dumpsec. It allows you to create custom reporst. They can also be exported if you wanted to import them to another application or spreadsheet.

That is great the tool.. but i am a litle scheptical inputting this "free tool" on a Domain!
how ever the following command is great -->
---
Open a command prompt, enter
net group /domain
This will enumerate the global groups in your domain.
To retrieve the members of a group, enter
net group GroupName /domain
(do NOT replace "/domain" with your domain name!)
To create a file that you can then print, simply redirect the output by adding ">SomeFileName.txt"
Works without domain admin permissions.
---
But I have over 25 groups and i have to enter each individual groups to find out who is a memeber of and it is time consuming. Is there a switch that i  can put to the command only once and then all groups and every users member of those groups are showing at once?
Thank you

Welcome back James !! Enjoy the vacation ?

Hyena is the paid version of Dumpsec, suggested above, but does offer a lot more.
