I re-read your request and realized that you wanted some code snippets. See attached.

' I put the following in a file called DisabledCmdPrompt.vbs
' Disable CMD Prompt
Option Explicit
Dim objShell, strRoot, strModify, strDelete
strRoot = "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\System\DisableCMD"
Set objShell = CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
strModify = objShell.RegWrite(strRoot,"00000001", "REG_DWORD")
if err.number <> 0 then
WScript.Echo "Error No: " & err.number & " check " & strRoot
else
wscript.Echo "Command Prompt Disabled"
end if
strModify = null
WScript.Quit

' I put the following in a file called EnableCmdPrompt.vbs
'Enable CMD Prompt
Option Explicit
Dim objShell, strRoot, strModify, strDelete
strRoot = "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\System\DisableCMD"
Set objShell = CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
strModify = objShell.RegWrite(strRoot,"00000000", "REG_DWORD")
if err.number <> 0 then
WScript.Echo "Error No: " & err.number & " check " & strRoot
else
wscript.Echo "Command Prompt Enabled"
end if
strModify = null
WScript.Quit
