What is the best method to find out how many (With the name) distribution and security groups we have within Active Directory.

I was thinking a query, but wouldn't know what to write for the code.

Ideally I would like a CSV file with a table that includes both Security and Distribution Groups, and then I can sit down and see which ones are not needed.

Any help, and suggestions are greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

Why not just do it the easy way. In the AD users and computers you can run this query.
(&(objectCategory=group)(name=*))

Basically any group where a name is present it will find. It will display like below and then you can export the list.
