But of course :) This should do it.

Const UF_DONT_EXPIRE_PASSWD = &H10000

strComputer = "SomePC"

Set objUsers = GetObject("WinNT://" & strComputer)
objServer.Filter = Array("user")
For Each objUser In objUsers
      intUserFlags = objUser.Get("userFlags")
      If intUserFlags And Not UF_DONT_EXPIRE_PASSWD Then
            objUser.Put "userFlags", intUserFlags XOr UF_DONT_EXPIRE_PASSWD
      End If
Next

Sorry this is a bit late, had to go to bed.

It should have read:

objUsers.Filter = Array("user")

Doing a few too many things at once. I take it you've got it all working?
