    Question changing local administrator password remotely

    Does anyone know of a Script, Policy or batch file that will change the local administrator password on all workstations on a domain?

    All the pc's are XP Pro & its on a 2003 Domain Controller.

    Reason for this is there are a lot of PC's spread across two buidings plus some users are using laptops.

    Thanks
