I have a large number of PC's that have a proup policy to stop users logging on locally with there network accounts and use only the local computer user account, but they change the password alot and i would like to be able to change that password via a gpo instead of having to visit each machine 1 after another, is this possible?

If all of the user accounts are the same per each machine, try this as a startup script:

net user "user account name" password
