Windows Powershell

I have recently been told about a utility which allows one to manage tasks on a domain with little to no scripting experience. It's called Windows Powershell. It's available on Microsoft's website and you must have .Net 2.0 installed to use it. It is basically a command prompt with the ability to execute WMI commands along with the typical commands one would use in a Dos box. There is a repository on Microsoft's website with examples of these commands. If you are a domain admin but lack the VBscipting experience, this is defiately something you should look into.
