VB Script = Add User to the local Machine

For some reason this script may be old.. Does the job when i add the computer to the local admin groups on the computer. But now each time the computer boots up, the script runs .. how can i hide the script giving the error message or adjust it that it works properly

I have this script as a startup script from my AD 2003 - basically adding the Administrator from the OU to the local admin acocunt on the computer.

Dim oGrpLocal
On Error Resume Next
Set oGrpLocal = GetObject ("WinNT://./administrators,group")
If err.Number <> 0 then
End If
'The DOMAIN below is the netbios domain name, and OULocalAdmins is the name of the group you
'want to add to the local administrators group.
If Not oGrpLocal.IsMember("WinNT://DOMAIN/OULocalAdmins") Then
   oGrpLocal.Add "WinNT://DOMAIN/OULocalAdmins"
End If

Try this script.........
Change the domain name

Option Explicit

Dim strDomain, objNetwork, strComputer
Dim objLocalGroup, objDomainGroup

' Specify the NetBIOS name of the domain.
strDomain = "MyDomain"

' Retrieve NetBIOS name of local computer.
Set objNetwork = CreateObject("Wscript.Network")
strComputer = objNetwork.ComputerName

' Bind to local Administrators group.
Set objLocalGroup = GetObject("WinNT://" & strComputer _
& "/Administrators,group")

' Bind to domain group.
Set objDomainGroup = GetObject("WinNT://" & strDomain & "/OULocalAdmins,group")

' Check if the domain group is already a member of the local group.
If Not objLocalGroup.IsMember(objDomainGroup.AdsPath) Then
' Add the domain group to the local group.
End If

' Clean up.
Set objNetwork = Nothing
Set objLocalGroup = Nothing
Set objDomainGroup = Nothing
