I've used ADFind for a while now and like it.  A friend, however, just showed me Hyena software.  It's pretty cool.  Is there another GUI-based piece of software that's like Hyena that isn't so expensive?

You could look at ad manager plus  http://www.manageengine.com/products/ad-manager/index.html
If you already know adfind I'd stick to that.  I don't have to tell  you how great it is.
...and all your GUI friends will be jealous of your command line skills :)
Thanks
Mike

Dameware is the closest to Hyena from cost to features. http://www.dameware.com/
It seems dameware may be a bit more friendlier than Heyna when comes to remote management. But I prefer mRemote or vRD which is far more friendlier than Remote Desktop.

You might want to have a look into:
http://www.s-code.com/ and product called VNC Manager.

This is application which allows you to manage information about systems in your network, collect details about system configuration and perform administrative tasks on machines rmeotely.

It is mainly application to get remote access to systems, but can do a lot using WMI as well.
