Other than manually, Is there anyway to clean up Active Directory?  I've disabled the computers that I think don't exist anymore but I was just curious if there is an easier way to do this.

There are AD tools out there. ScriptLogic has an extensive application that can help with AD cleanup.
Their product doesn't require a server side component, but it's recommended for advanced features that you may want to use. AD Janitor is also an editors choice for scanning AD and cleaning up your Objects.  http://www.scriptlogic.com/products/activeadmin/ or www.specopssoft.com.
