I attended a week of GCWN training last summer, and the instructor demonstrated a secure solution to this problem using powershell.  The complete solution is posted on his blog.

It is not the best idea to activate that account, security-wise. And when it's deactivated, the password may be empty, it simply does not matter. I would not recommend doing anything with that account, including password changing.

Additional information because it came up recently  -- Microsoft "Local Administrator Password Solution" (LAPS) was recently released as version 6, and changes the local admin password more frequently, and stores the information in a protected location in the directory.

In my article http://www.experts-exchange.com/articles/18180/A-concept-for-safe-user-support.html I outline a concept superior to LAPS, suitable for end user support.
