We are running Active Directory 2010 and I would like use a FREE program that will tell me the number of users, number of groups, etc.  What would be the best free program to do this?

I've been using AD Info, but one thing I need to do is count the total number of objects in AD and I cannot find a way to list the total number of objects using AD Info.  I see some postings on how to do it in PowerShell, but I haven't been successful.

That is where the adfind shortcuts come in very handy

adfind -sc adobjcnt
adfind -sc adobjcnt:user
adfind -sc adobjcnt:group
adfind -sc adobjcnt:computer


There are other examples in help

Thanks
