    okay, here's the skinny. At work, we use vbs scripts to map people's network logs whenever they logon. That way they can log on to any machine and have their network mappings done. However, we had a guy quit, think he did some minor shell mod stuff, but the bottom line is that when the vbs scrip loads up it opens in notepad. I've done everthing I know how to do it override that and get command prompt to open it, including going through the folders options, file types, and setting the default to command prompts for ANY vbs script. Still on reboot, up pops the script in notepad. I don't want to do a reinstall as there are about a zillion apps on there, and installing them would take some time I don't have, so I'm hoping there is an easy fix to this.

    tia,

    This is probably a stupid question, but is the file extension vbs? When I create scripts in notepad, after I finish I do a save as, name it then end with .vbs

    should be....they are all pushed out by GPO, so everyone in whichever container uses the identical scripts, and nobody else in his container is having this issue.....
