Service Account

There is a service on each workstation that runs using a domain account. We need to change the password on that account. Of course if we do the service will not start next time the workstationis rebooted. I am looking for a way to change the account password under the service on each workstation. I thought I could just make the change on one computer than export the registry. That does not seem to get the password information. Any help would be great. Thanks
