Computer Accounts vs Service Accounts, Round 3

If you've been unlucky enough to have read my blog for a year or more, you've seen me post crap about using "computer" or "service" accounts, instead of dedicated (manually created) AD accounts, for running scheduled or automated tasks.  Things like back-ups, replication, monitors, etc.  Well, the addition of MSA in Server 2008 R2 is also a great option.  I forgot to mention that.  In any case:  If you are still using manually-created user accounts as "service" or "proxy" accounts, and are still maintaining passwords manually - STOP!!!!
