Thanks, anyone know if there are any windows command line tools that i can use other than VB scripts

Check the below commands,

 1. How to find all members for a particular group
  dsget group "<DN of the group>" -members

1a. How to find all groups for a particular member (including nested groups)
  dsget user "<DN of the user>" -memberof -expand
  dsquery user -samid "username" | dsget user -memberof -expand

Can go through the below link for few more commands..,

Many thanks for that helps me a lot. If i run teh first command it does give me teh mebers but it also list other groups. Is there a command that will show me the mebers of the DN and members of any nexted groups that you know of?
dsquery user -samid USER | dsget user -Memberof -expand | dsget Group -samid

Replace USER for your user you need
