Fix: Windows Script Host access is disabled on this machine

124 Comments

  1. Thanks so much for the simple instructions with screenshots. I usually create a System Restore point before changing anything in the registry, but I got the “access is disabled” message with no access to System Restore. No idea why – I’ve used it before, and I know my cat didn’t change it.

  22. Windows 7- I don’t have the “Enabled” option in the right panel. For those that are saying to use HKEY_CURRENT_USER, I have even less options.
    I don’t want to use “FixWin”. Would you tell me how to manually add the Enabled option? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

  23. Some antiviruses and usb protection tools disable Windows Script Host by default as several โ€œHTML malwareโ€ have been reported to use WSH objects
    so if you have any of theses protection tools (SMADAV for instance )
    go to its icon in the notification area right click on it and chose allow windows script & macro

  24. sir, mybe you could try HKEY_CURRENT_USERSoftwareMicrosoftWindows Script HostSettings, it worked on my laptop

  25. sir, mybe you could try HKEY_CURRENT_USERSoftwareMicrosoftWindows Script HostSettings, im using window 7 too.. it only worked when i went to HKEY_CURRENT_USER

  26. I tried entering the 1 value which usually means enabled. OR
    0 means disabled, and also the registry entry by default doesn’t exist. I deleted that entry to but
    i keep getting that error. Any anther fix, i would be glad to know.
    Awaiting suggestion.

  28. actually i was using windows 8 i am having the same problem in my registry editor their is no window
    host.. give me another solution for that

  29. I’m using windows 7.
    That key is missing. All I have is Default, active debugging, display logo, silent terminate and use winsafer. What should i do?

  30. Am using windows 10 64bit but I tried following the steps of enabling the windows host script but the enable thing is not there what can I do

  31. i do not have the file Enable (REG_DWORD) in the registry editor right windows, what can i do to put it back there ?

  32. Are u using smadav anti-virus? If so, then u should right-click on the app and click “allow windows script & macro (forever)”

  33. Nice.. thank u for the information. My math teacher has this problem on his labtop, so i was checking/browsing around the internet for finding an answer that could solve this problem. At last, i found it on ur website. Btw, i am wondering what would i do next if ur problem-solver didn’t work ?? Cause i had seen many people used this way, at the first, it’s working perfectly, but after restarting, the same problem turned on again.

  34. Make a new one… first, u should make the new ” REG_DWORD” by clicking right.. n then, rename it ( unto “enabled” ). Finally, change its value from 0 to 1.

  35. Click on OK and exit the Registry. If you donโ€™t see this entry, then you may need to create it, as it does not exist by default in Windows.

  36. Hie I have done that but it still show the same as if it is disabled , but am an enable it and it failed to start

  37. Thanks and Thanks And Thanks And THANKS 1001 TIMES, Having spent 48 hours on the machine watching various youtube tutorials which never helped. I was almost giving up. My machine couldnt even display the start up window. It could just display the welcome screen, the a dark plain blank screen with only the white cursor. But when i managed to maneuver and entered task manager, then clicked file , new task then i entered exploerer.exe. It opened thw windows then. I then used you genious steps to evable windows host service

    thanks so much

  38. My System was showing Window Host Script disabled…I was able to access the desktop after enabling the WHS. However, after installing the virus it instructed I have to restart the Systems to effect the installation. After the restart the System screen went black after booting, with only the cursor arrow white, and it moves as I touch the pad or the screen touch. After running the antivirus (because it displayed an antivirus pop-up that permitted scanning, although the screen is blank and black), as the System has been infested with virus & Trojans, and after cleaning the infected files with he antivirus (about 157 in number), the Systems refuses to show desktop but black & blank! What to do?

  39. Thank you very much Sir. It’s almost incredible that the laptop could work again, but behold, it’s a reality! I give you kudos for this. I followed the instructions – the previous one & this – & they worked for me perfectly. I sincerely expressed my profound gratitude.

  55. In windows 8.1 it is under
    HKEY_CURRENT_USERSoftwareMicrosoftWindows Script HostSettings.
    and there is no entry so you have to create new DWORD (32BIT) VALUE and rename as Enabled and set value to 1.
