active directory users

Windows Server 2008 R2.  How do you reconcile or run a program on the server to show which users have not logged into the network or had a response from a DHCP server in the past year?  Not sure if I'm explaining that right.  One time I had someone do this for me on our server and it showed the users that have not logged into the network for a year.  They ended up having a red x beside the name.  Want to clean up active directory.

You can use a powershell script for the users - see this TechNet entry:

As for finding stale computers (DHCP, I don't think, is a good method).
Here are a couple of scripts that can get you that information.
