Hi Online! smile

No, I didn't tried to rename that registry key...

I am afraid of that other programs stop to work correctly.

Are you using this solution? Do you see if another program stops to work?

Thanks again for the quick response!

Best regards,

Look, Wscript is an optional part of the Windows, so nothing is supposed to crash if you disable it (fully or partially). I don't think the COM object is widely used by applications. When I browsed the web I noticed that it's only used by some VB Scripts (*.vbs) and particular server-side ASP applications (theoretically every programming language with COM interface can use it).

So... feel free to rename the key to anything else you'd want, and if (in the worst case) a program complain about a missing Wscript object, you'll always be able to rename it back. I see no danger in doing it, and at least when I did myself nothing went wrong.

I hope this answered your questions, and if anyone feels like correcting me, please do so. Good luck! smile

just out of curiosity, where the hell did you learn so much about COM objects? (this is directed at querty too)

When I found a name of an interesting COM object that might become useful (for example, Word.Application; Microsoft.XMLHTTP; ADOX.Catalog), I used google to search for its name. That's now I learned (or not) about possible ways to use it.

Microsoft's Ole Viewer allows you to browse through the objects you have on your PC and reveal their methods and properties.

This is what I did, but qwerty might have something to add laugh

Hi guys! smile

I just followed the Online tip.

Will do some tests to see if I detect some problem.

If something goes wrong, I return to give you a feedback.

Google should return a few results for every object, including pieces of code from which you can get ideas. However this is what I can add:

WScript.Shell - Get Wscript's documentation here.

MAPI.Session - If it's identical to MSMAPI.* objects, this example might become useful.

WinHTTP5.1.dll - What you are looking for is "WinHttp.WinHttpRequest.5.1", but keep in mind that this object only exists on some WinXP systems, so don't expect scripts that depend on it to work everywhere. Instead, use "Microsoft.XMLHTTP"

Your problem isn't with mIRC so to speak, but with the lack of security policies in your OS environment.

If you are using Windows 2000 or Windows XP Pro as the OS for these machines, you are better off using Group Policies to disable registry access to users.

Be careful, however.
