For the user log on the windows services, can I change the user and setup the password with DOS commands? For example, from
Log on as:
Local System account
to
This account: sysadm1
and set up the password.

Thanks for info. Can you show me one more command?
how to get obj (YourUser)? The logic is
if obj != sysadm, then do
  sc config YourService obj= YourUser password= YourPwd
end
