Windows Script Host error message


Hi Jackie,

Windows script host error message is actually your settings default. Windows script host error is actually created by microsoft in order to run all types of scripts during startup. Anyway you can disable this pop-up to prevent users running any scripts including VBscript and Jscripts on your WSHA.

Step 1

in order to disable Windows Script Host create one of the following two registry entries (REG_DWORD) and set the value to 0 (you should create entry because it is not exist). Disable WSH for a particular user the create this type of entry:

HKEY_CURRENT_USERSoftwareMicrosoftWindows Script HostSettingsEnabled

Once you enforced this following message, will be displayed any time a user attempts to run a WSH script:

Windows Script Host access is disabled on this machine. Contact your administrator for details.

The message will appear on the box even if the user attempts to start the script from a batch file or using a designated script host (for example, by typing cscript.exe c:scriptsmyscript.vbs at the command prompt).

Mostly Fresh install Operating System doesn't have this problem, if you having trouble in disabling this scripts, you can simply install a fresh copy of your Operating System. Reinstall will surely fix this problem.

Actually having this script is not a problem, it doesn't affect your computer performance, lag on your systems and internet.
