There's nothing wrong with NSClient++, but NCPA is what is now officially recommended for performing Windows checks:
https://assets.nagios.com/downloads/nag ... ndows.html

This documentation references Nagios XI, but the parts that cover setting up NSClient++ are still relevant:
https://assets.nagios.com/downloads/nag ... ios-XI.pdf

On page 3, you configure a password for use with check_nt via the installation wizard. That password can be whatever you want, and you can change it at any time in the nsclient.ini configuration file.

Let us know if you have additional questions, or if something is unclear :)

You should also be able to see the password in the C:\Program Files\NSClient++\nsclient.ini file.
