Looking for a program or tool to check dates and names

I'm hoping to find a program or too/utility that can take my gedcom and bring me list of people with dates that might be worth checking. I went through a happy stage a couple of years ago accepting Ancestry hints and got some dates that are obviously wrong (like having a baby at six years old or having a bunch of kids in the same year (more than anywhere near normal)). During this lamentable stage I also accepted hints without carefully reviewing the names so I'd like to get a list of every time the surname from father to son changes so I can review them.

I've used tools to fix problems with duplicates or place names but I don't seem to be able to find tools to do these things. Suggestions?

I believe TMG (The Master Genealogist) can do this. See attached screen shots

The first shows an audit report you can run and set your own parameters for.

The second shows a filter you can run on any surname and see if anyone has a father who does not have that surname.
