    Default Adding Windows Script Host switch on Folder Options

    How many times Microsoft has fixed many bugs related to Windows Script Host?

    This tweak allows easily to switch on /off Windows Script Host without editing any settings or specified WSH associations (.vbs, .vbe, .js, .jse, .wsf, .wsh file types).

    Save these lines as switchWSH.reg:

    Code:
    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
    
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced\Folder\EnableScriptHost]
    "Type"="checkbox"
    "Text"="Enable Windows Script Host"
    "HKeyRoot"=dword:80000001
    "RegPath"="Software\\Microsoft\\Windows Script Host\\Settings"
    "ValueName"="Enabled"
    "CheckedValue"=dword:00000001
    "UncheckedValue"=dword:00000000
    "DefaultValue"=dword:00000001
    If you want to apply this tweak, remember to uncheck this option and to apply this setting.





    This is the error screen when I try to execute a .vbs script:

    Thank you Max.
    Once I was used to disable Windows Script Host with XP-antispy (portable)

    I posted it because I noted this is a very rare tweak.

    Excellent. I even never thought about disabling it. But handy to stop executions :-)

    Thanks for this.
