Windows Script Host (WSH), is a Microsoft technology that allows for scripting abilities, like batch files, but includes a whole host of features. These scripts can be run directly from the desktop (just double-click on the script), or from a command prompt. They can be run in either the protected-mode Windows-based host wscript.exe, or the real-mode command shell-based host cscript.exe.

A few “HTML malware” seem to be using WSH objects, because of this, those who do not require this feature, tend to disable it. However disabling WSH will prevent you from running any scripts, including VBScript and JScript scripts, which need to be able to use this technology. Also, some software may require this feature to be enabled for the software to actually work.

To enable (or disable) Windows Script Host (WSH), type "regedit.exe" (without the quotes) in Run box and hit Enter. This will open the "Registry Editor".

NOTE: It is not recommended that you do anything in the "Registry Editor" if you do not have the right information. Removing, diabling, deleting, etc., the wrong thing in here can cause you some serious problems.

1. Navigate to the following key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows Script Host\Settings

2. On the right side you will see "Enabled". If you see the entry "0", it means that the Windows Script Host access is disabled on your Windows machine.

3. Next double-click on it the "Enabled" or "0" and give it Value Data "1" to enable it.

A value of "1" will "Enable" Windows Script Host
A value of "0" will "Disable" Windows Script Host.

4. Now click "OK" and exit the registry.

5. If you don’t see this entry, then you may need to create it, as it does not exist by default in your Windows.

6. You should no longer receive the Windows Script Host access is disabled on your computer message.
