you could try to rename wscript.exe into wscript.exe.old
If you loose any features, you know that wscript.exe is important for win2k.
if not, your problem is solve.

Betreff: Can I delete Wscript.exe?

One way to guard against script viruses and worms is obviously to delete
Wscript.exe entirely. What I'd like to know is how does this affect the
system (W2k)? Do I loose features that I might need? Also, I'm not exactly
sure whether IE and Outlook Express use Wscript.exe to run scripts, so any
info on that would be appreciated. Good links will do!

Thanks!
