You would want to use a group policy startup script. Not a logon script.
For security purposes, you would also want to consider encoding the
script and possibly even limiting read rights on the "scripts" folder to
only the "Domain Computers" group. VBScript encoding is not very strong,
but it is better than having it in clear text.

Subject: [gptalk] Local Admin Passwords

I am needing to change a small office's local administrator password.
I'd prefer not to touch all 30 workstations to do this.  I thought I
read at one point that this could be automated through a logon script.
Is there a better way to do this?  Maybe through a Group Policy?

Servers are running Windows 2003.
Workstations are Windows XP.
