delete wscript.exe from win2000

How do I delete wscript.exe and cscript.exe from win2000 (so I can stop this iloveyou virus and its variants)?

If i delete them by commandline or via explorer the system puts them back again.

You'd need to also delete them from WINNT\SYSTEM32\DLLCACHE, since that's where the system copies them from. This is a hidden, read-only folder.
