We have an account "accountx" that is set up in the Users Group on a LOT of Windows servers.  This account is used to run Scheduled Tasks on these servers.  We have the need the need to change the password for "accountx".  

To do this, I need some utility that will take as input a list of computer names and find out if the account "accountx" is defined on that machine.....and if it is defined....then change the password for "accountx" to a given password.

Hope someone can help me. msyed1
