Here is an awesome script I found to change the admin password on all the computers in your domain.  It uses a simple visual basic object to search for all the computers in your domain’s Active Directory then loops through each computer and sets a new password for the Administrator account.

Set objConnection = CreateObject("ADODB.Connection")
Set objCommand =   CreateObject("ADODB.Command")
objConnection.Provider = "ADsDSOObject"
objConnection.Open "Active Directory Provider"

Set objCommand.ActiveConnection = objConnection
objCommand.CommandText = _
    "Select Name From 'LDAP://DC=yourcompany,DC=com' Where objectClass='computer'"
objCommand.Properties("Page Size") = 1000
objCommand.Properties("Searchscope") = ADS_SCOPE_SUBTREE
Set objRecordSet = objCommand.Execute

Do Until objRecordSet.EOF
    strComputer = objRecordSet.Fields("Name").Value

    Set objUser = GetObject("WinNT://" & strComputer & "/Administrator")
    objUser.SetPassword "mynewpassword!"
