You can use the "net user" command.

Used to add/create/modify user accounts

Syntax:

net user <username> [password or *]

Type net user /? at a command prompt for a list of all switches.

Answers 1 and 2 are correct. You can take this farther though. You can add the command into a batch file to change multiple passwords with one keystroke. We made a change to a group of 105 users with one batch file, made things very simple. If you have any questions, feel free to email me.
