Try this,

Now any error met the script will just continue on  to the next

Const ForAppending = 8
Const ForReading = 1
 On Error Resume Next
Set fso=CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
Set objFSO = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
Set objTextFile = objFSO.CreateTextFile("C:\pass_changed.txt")
Set objNetwork = CreateObject("Wscript.Network")
 
Set objFile=fso.OpenTextFile("C:\computers.txt", ForReading)
 
Do Until objFile.atEndofStream
     strComputer = objFile.ReadLine
    
Set objUser = GetObject("WinNT://" & strComputer & "/administrator")
 
intPasswordAge = objUser.PasswordAge
intPasswordAge = intPasswordAge * -1 
dtmChangeDate = DateAdd("s", intPasswordAge, Now)
 
objTextFile.WriteLine "Password for " & strComputer & " was last changed: " & dtmChangeDate
