How to Remove VBS Script


The Windows registry has a "run" key that runs applications each time you boot your computer. This key is used to run Visual Basic Scripts (VBS). Network administrators set up the run key to execute the VBS script, which sets up settings and other permissions. This keeps uniform settings on your Windows network. You remove a VBS file by deleting its reference in the Windows registry.

  • Click the Windows "Start" button. Type "Regedit" into the text box and press "Enter." This opens your Windows registry.

  • Navigate to the "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run" registry key. On the right side of the window, all the applications, including the VBS file, are shown.

  • Right-click the value with the VBS file and select "Delete." Click "Yes" to confirm that you want to delete the key.

  • Reboot your computer. Changes to the registry take effect the next time you boot the computer.
