How can I stop the Open File Security Warning on a .vbs in Windows 2003?

I am trying to run a .bat script on a Windows 2003 R2 Server which makes thousands of calls to the Microsoft supplied xcacls.vbs script (http://support.microsoft.com/?id=825751).

Every time xcacls.vbs is called it is interrupted by the "Open File Security Warning" with no apparent means of switching this off.

Rather than needing to OK this every time, is there a way to switch this off either completely or just for this single .vbs script? I do not have the skills or the time to rewrite my .bat script in .vbs...

Thanks
Eddie

try to add your script's folder name into IE's trusted zone, this should avoid this happening again.
