Tool to check for locked accounts on local computers

I'm using useraccount.vbs from the 2000 RK with great success to check the local domain and local servers for locked out accounts.  When I try to run this tool across a WAN on certain servers it is incredibly slow - effectively unusable.  I can't use Win2003 only tools.

I've googled and found the MS "ALTools" which don't do what I need.  
I've also found the joeware.net tool, but that only works on Domain controllers.

Anyone know of another non-gui tool/script that I can try?

The vbscript below should do it, though I don't know if it will be any faster than useraccount.vbs


'Enter all target computernames in this array.
arrComputers = Array("COMPUTER1","COMPUTER2","COMPUTER3")

For Each objComputer in arrComputers

   Set colAccounts = GetObject("WinNT://" & objComputer & "")
   colAccounts.Filter = Array("user")

   For Each objUser In colAccounts
      If objuser.IsAccountLocked = "True" Then
         Wscript.Echo objComputer & "\" & objUser.Name
      End If
   Next

The cause was ultimately found to be related to built-in Checkpoint firewall rules -aka SMartDefense blocking port 135 traffic and labeling it as ICKiller.  Re-working that permitted the .vbs to work.
