To change the user password using command line option, you can use "net user" command. Please have a look at http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=149427.

If you combine this with the at command you can run the command on different machines, e.g. at \\<machine name> <time> cmd /c net user Administrator anythingyouwant
e.g. at \\savilljohn 18:00 cmd /c net user Administrator password

The /c after cmd causes the command window to close after the command has been executed. An alternative to the at command would be the soon command:
soon \\<machine name> cmd /c net user Administrator password

For this to work you will need to ensure the Scheduler (Task Scheduler) service is running on the destination machines.
