Or, in addition to what Paul has suggested you could use cusrmgr.exe to do
this! Have a look at the following MSKB Article:

Just one more way to do it! It is always good to have choices!

A startup script.

Create a GPO that has all of these computers within its scope, and assign a
startup script that is a batch file that does this:

net user administrator newPassword

Reboot the machines and this will reset the password.
