Auditing / Cleaning Active Directory

I need to audit my active directory and clean out unused, stale, or non existent computer objects.  

Scipt? 3rd party tool?  Need a point in the right direction.

There's some good information on the use of the dsquery function for exactly this process over at http://www.windowsnetworking.com/kbase/WindowsTips/Windows2003/AdminTips/ActiveDirectory/PruningOldComputerAccountsinAD.html. You can view a list of old accounts not logged into within the past x weeks, then prune them once checking.

Hope this helps

Just use the OldCmp.exe utility.  It's very complete and has several levels of self protection..
