    the 'net user' command can do this.

    I found this script on TechNet:
    Code:
    strComputer = "MyComputer"
    Set objUser = GetObject("WinNT://" & strComputer & "/Administrator, user")
    objUser.SetPassword "testpassword"
    objUser.SetInfo

    From the techrepublic

    Essentially, the script reads in a list of computer names from a file called SERVERS.TXT. For each server listed in this file, the script connects to the administrator account on that server and resets the password. All results are posted to a log file (CHANGEPWDSERVERS.LOG), including accounts that the script was unsuccessful in changing.

    Thanks guys

    @Geoff: yes many passwords remotely.

    I like the Techrepublic one - to have a record to see that all are done is excellent.

    Run 'net user' in a machine startup script. That'll work.
