well, do you mean disable javascript for your own app that uses the webbrowser control ? do you just mean disable javascript on IE itself? You can just do that through Tools->Internet Options->Security->Custom Level->Disable Active Scripting

I found that I can enable and disable via the reg key:

HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\
Internet Settings\Zones\3\1400

and setting DWORD value to 0=enable and 3= disable.

I'm not 100% sure how general this is (it seems to work OK on Win98, but NT or 2K is still a question).  And it has a distinct flaw that it seems to only affect the next *new* IE that you open.

Here is EnabScript.JS (JavaScript) file I keep on my desktop for double click access:

oShell= new ActiveXObject("WScript.Shell")
var DISABLE= 3, ENABLE= 0;
var nRet= oShell.Popup(
  "Do you want Scripting?\n"
  +"Yes to Enable, No to Disable",  0,
  "Enable/Disable IE5 Scripting", 35
);
if (nRet==2) WScript.Application.Quit();  // 2= cancel
if (nRet==6) nNewVal= ENABLE;  // 6 is YES
if (nRet==7) nNewVal= DISABLE; // 7 is  NO

sName=
"HKCU\\Software\\Microsoft\\Windows\\CurrentVersion\\"
+"Internet Settings\\Zones\\3\\1400"

oShell.RegWrite(sName, nNewVal,"REG_DWORD" );

WScript.Application.Quit();
