Notepad2 works for me.
Not Intellisense but colour codes different part of script which helps a lot.

Microsoft Visual Web Developer 2005 Express Edition works for me. And it is free.

There is also a 2008 version.

Thanks. I didn't think about the express versions. I have visual studio express 2008 csharp version so I am going to try it when I get home. Sharath, do you know if any of the tools you mention are portable and can be used on a usb drive?

I use UltraEdit to edit my VBS, it's colour coded and also helps you see where you might have done a syntax wrong.  It's not freeware though.

I've always heard primalscript is the best vbs editor around (it will, like most of these suggestions, obviously work with other code).  It's not free and it's not cheap, but it is probably the best (or one of)

I use PrimalScript Professional, and find it absolutely awesome, however, VBSEdit (www.vbsedit.com) is another fantastic free one, although without paying, you don't get a debugger, but there's always the Microsoft Script Debugger for that (cscript //x script.vbs)

Regards,

Rob.
