"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing.

For finding such a computers use this command:
dsquery computer –inactive 12 > c:\admin\computer90day.txt

and for disable this one should be working
    dsquery computer –inactive 12 | dsmod computer –disabled yes

if yes what is the command for that

yes, should be possible.
I found also script on Technet which find inactive computers, disable them and move to separate OU
