Seeking a utility that will report all network resources to which a security group (or groups) has access to.

I am looking for a utility that will parse through my entire network and report where a specific active directory group (or groups) has been granted access (to files, folders, shares, printers ...)  A previous network administrator created security groups named "all users", "all users 1" and "everyuser" to name a few and I'd like to remove these groups from A/D.  I don't want to remove the groups without being informed as to where exactly the group security has been applied.

Thanks for the links sarang_tinguria.  Sysinternals has a lot of great utilities so I'll have to remember to check there first next time I'm looking for a specific tool.  Both utilities run quickly and export to a txt file which can easily be opened, sorted, filtered and searched in Excel.
