I am installing a product, and as I am doing this from the Windows Server, the software requires, as part of the install, that Windows 7 and Windows 8 machines have
"default" admin account enabled, and password allocated.

Is there a way I can do this centrally from the server e.g using Group Policy

Otherwise I am having to logon to 200 local machines!!
