I was poking through the Protocols documentation that MSFT was forced to publish one day and saw some interesting stuff around the machine account password so dug into it. This tool is the end result of that playing. 


You do not have to supply the email address. I would like you to fill that in though so that I have an idea on how popular a tool really is. If I see 1000 downloads with 900 different email addresses I know it is more widespread than one that has 1000 downloads and 200 different email addresses because the same person needed to keep downloading it for some reason.
