Hi.

About 2 hours ago, my friend visited a website that had vbs in it's html script...
So while I was ripping his friggin' head off, the vbs script killed a lot of stuff.

I managed to fix everything again, but decided to turn off VBS by deleting it's extension through Explorer.

Tools -> Options -> Filetypes.


Well, I need it back because a lot of my apps are using VBS, which, in all anger, was totally forgotten.
How can I bring all 4 VB-ish filetypes back?
Can anybody check for me the complete settings?

Thank you in advance.

Items in blue which are underlined are clickable to give more information about the process

Click start then run, type prefetch then press enter, click edit then select all, right click any file then click delete, confirm delete

Click start, all programmes, accessories, system tools to run disc clean up

Click start, all programmes, accessories, system tools to run disc defragmenter

Click start then run, type sfc /scannow then press enter, you need the XP CD and Windows File Protection will show a blue onscreen progress bar, when the bar goes, reboot

How could THAT fix my problem!

There is nothing wrong with loading times, nothing wrong with the disk, nothing wrong with my mind.
All I need are the settings for VBS/E/WSH.

NVM, I'll do a fomat.

I already said I fixed everything, all but those vbs scripts.
I forgot which program runs the scripts. I know it's WSH, but there are 4 different ones and I tried them in all combinations.
I couldn't find the string values for the extensions either. Not even on google.

My WinXP CD is shattered in 12 pieces, so I can't run that scan.
