There are methods available to the IT Pro from Microsoft - but you would need a Technet Sub to access most of them.

One thing you could try is to set up the accounts on one machine and then use Windows Easy Transfer to create a selective transfer file for the users - just save the settings for each user using the advanced settings.

You should then be able to use this file to "restore" the settings to each of the "new" machines.

Although this is not the designed function for this application it may be worth experimenting

Windows 7 comes with an inbuilt utility called Easy Transfer which allows you to transfer Files, users, Settings, documents, emails, Internet Favorites, videos, shared documents etc from one computer to another. You can use an external hard drive, USB drive, Network or Easy transfer Cable which directly sends data to your new computer. Here is a tutorial.

bit late in the day, but i set em up with batch files,this one will create nine passworded accounts, 3 user groups, and put user's in differents groups.if you want to try it out copy and paste into note pad, save as anything you like as long as it ends in .bat, BUT be carefull make sure you have no existing users with same names or pc name is not benny jack ect, change em to anything you like. to enable batch files to run in w7 you will have to wind UAC down to the bottom.
