    You won't have any problems unless you have services or sheduled tasks running with that account.

      There is no scheduled tasks, but under services of servers, i see some such as:
      SQL Server Agent > Properties and under Log On tab with the log on of:
      domain\Administrator and password.
      After changing it in AD and Users, do i have to go in here and change it all to the new password ?

        Yes and I would restart the service right away. Just to make sure it works

            An issue I had once is that if u have any network drives mapped with the old admin credentials then you would need to update those to.

              It's just a user account so what do you do when you reset a regular user account?
              Precise, it doesn't matter.
