I need to force my users to stop using local Administrator accounts on their XP PCs. To do this, I need to rename all their XP administrator accounts and change their passwords from the using the Active Directory or through any other mean. We are in a Windows 2003 domain with about 4000 users whoa are in over 20 cities, hence the need to do it from a central point.
