We support 700 desktops for faculty & staff here on campus. Most of our
users are running Win2k or WinXP. We have Backups scheduled using the
local Admin username/password. We did this so that Backup would continue
to work even after the user changed his/her password.

For security purposes, we would like to change the local admin password
on all PCs every year. We have a script to do this and can push it via
policy. But doing so causes Backup within Scheduled Tasks to fail.

Anyone know how (via policy) to reset the password stored within a
Scheduled Tasks job (specifically Backup) so we don't have to touch each
