I have a situation where, running the WMI Query "Select * from Win32_UserAccount" returns all of the domain users when connected to any desktop in the domain.

How can I modify the query to return only the local users for that machine?

Returns a list of all the user accounts found on the local computer.
Set objNetwork = CreateObject("Wscript.Network")
strComputer = objNetwork.ComputerName
Set colAccounts = GetObject("WinNT://" & strComputer & "")
colAccounts.Filter = Array("user")
For Each objUser In colAccounts
    Wscript.Echo objUser.Name

Look at the example in http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/desktop/aa394507(v=vs.85).aspx - just provide the computer name as domain name (and no username) to restrict to local accounts. E.g. as WQL:
select * from Win32_UserAccount where Domain = 'TheComputer'

Open in new window

Restriciting by domain to the local pc works. Thank you.
