How to Enabled/Disabled Windows Script Host
« on: October 14, 2009, 09:09:15 AM »
Some software need Windows Script Host to be Enabled, But it's best to have it Disabled.

"If you have no software that need "Windows Script Host" to be Enabled"
AS it can slow the hole of Windows down and let bad people in your computer,

To Enabled/Disabled Windows Script Host

Go to run and open up "RegEdit"
Once open Go to :
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows Script Host\Settings

Look for something called "Enabled" Double Click it and put the Value as "1" to
Enabled, or "0" to Disabled

Your going to need to edit one more Value now,

Go to :
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows Script Host\Settings

Look for something called "Enabled" Double Click it and put the Value as "1" to
Enabled, or "0" to Disabled

Your all done, If you know of a easier way do tell :)
