I am sorry but I am a newbie to scripting. I have created a vb script to do an uninstall of an application. I want to target computers and run the script against them and record the output to a file. I know I can put this in a logon script and let it run that way but I really need to target the machines and run it that way.

Does anyone know of a way to run a script agains another computer remotely?

You could check out PSEXEC from the pstools suite from sysinternals (http://www.sysinternals.com/).

Maybe that will allow you to do what you want...
