From what I understad the response.redirect command tells the browser to go to a given location. But if the browser is tweaked to override such commands, would that make the vbscript to continued running?

The also raises the question whether reponse.redirect is acceptable when denying access to a area for logged user only etc.

VBScript is handled server-side before the output is handed to the end-user.

The script should stop executing after the response.redirect is sent, but if you want to be 100% sure, you can put
Response.End
after that line.

Yes - response.redirect does abort the scipt's execution and redirects the user to another page.
Use response.end
That is the best way to just STOP execution. Generally you want to output some sort of error message before you stop the execution so as to not confuse a user.
Another thing to consider is that you should set all recordsets and other DB objects to nothing to conserve memory. It doesn't really matter unless it's a large scale site, but it's best practice to free up that memory before killing the script.
