Use this ina (.vbs) file. Of course change the variables to your needs.

strComputer = "MyComputer"
Set colAccounts = GetObject("WinNT://" & strComputer & ",computer")
Set objUser = colAccounts.Create("user", "Admin2")
objUser.SetPassword "sA2xpWh"
objUser.SetInfo

This one will add the user to a group as well.

strComputer = "MyComputer"
Set objGroup = GetObject("WinNT://" & strComputer & "/Administrators,group")
Set objUser = GetObject("WinNT://" & strComputer & "/kenmyer,user")
objGroup.Add(objUser.ADsPath)
