What does VB Script do?

  Newuser3068 16:27 07 Dec 2004

I have been recommended to delete visual basic scripting files from the list of registered file types on my computer, in order to reduce the risk of infection by worms. The recommendation simply says "this will prevent some functions from running on your computer".

If I do disable this function, could you please tell me what will stop working?

VB Script is code that is written on a web page to give some extra functionality, like checking if you have filled in a box on a form, or saying Good Morning if its before noon. Disabling it means that the code will not run, which in most cases will merely mean that you will see the content (pictures) and text, but may not be able to interact with the page. So it is actually impossible to say what effect it will have, it will depend entirely on the content of the page visited.
