It would help a lot if you provide more info on what are you doing (infinite loop, long process etc.)
Anyway the VBS doesn't listen for keyboard interceptions unless you tell him to read key from the keyboard.  Something like attached script that ask user to enter a decimal number and convert it to hex until 0 is entered.
But this way script paused until user enters the number which might be not appropriate in your situation.

Also you might want to chech this solution that actually used abilities of internet explorer to handle keystrokes:

Do While true
Wscript.StdOut.Write "Enter a Decimal Number (Enter 0 to exit): "
strDecimal = Wscript.StdIn.ReadLine
 
if strDecimal="0" then
   Wscript.StdOut.WriteLine "Exiting..."
   Wscript.Quit
Else
Wscript.StdOut.WriteLine strDecimal & " is equal to " & _
 Hex(strDecimal) & " in hex."
end if
 
Loop

strange can clt+C stop the execution of vbs file? if yes tell me how to prevent it.

any way please note, there is a file with infinite loop i.e. which once started will keep on running. now i want to add some keys or some coding which help me to stop it when required. i do not want any inputbox to be displayed for me . i want if some key is pressed with combination of some other key execution stops. pls amend the above code as required.

If your vbs will run in background with no user interface than your request is not possible

no its impossible.
I have read all questions you posted here. it seems like you want to implement some sort of security but you choose wrong tools and methods to do it. If you'll explain what is your problem and what you want to achieve I am sure you will get much more helpful comments
