Kenny,

I think that what Saleem is after is a utility that will identify all
the
services that rely upon the "Administrator" ID and provide a simple to
use
interface so he can then manually change each one to a password of his
choosing.

So happens I could do with it as well:-)

Regards

David S.

Your wanting an application to change your password?
How do you plan on getting the password if (when?) something breaks?
For the security paranoid monkey I am, having it send it to you via
email or IM is probably not the best idea. But you may be in a position
where you can not help that...  In which case, I feel for you.

BUT, if you REALLY want to change your password via vbscript...

(hmm, my IE appears to be hosed.... Oh well..)

Also use VBScript to message you... If you don't have the password...
Life could get difficult, unless you have a method of getting around
that. There is a bootdisk on the net, I don't remember where, that will
allow you to change the password if you forgot it, lost it, or whatever.

I, as well as many others, would highly suggest against this.

Blast shields up, admonishment below.

The administrator account should never be used except for emergency, and
should be a never changing un-expiring 15 character
alpha-numeric-special
password.

If you change the password without the help of a 3rd party app, you are
likely to face humongous problems because if they are forcing you to
change
it, that means it is commonly used and everything is probably installed
with
it.
