An endless loop in the making...
Dim objShell : Set objShell = CreateObject("Wscript.Shell")
 
RunIt()
 
Sub RunIt()
  Wscript.Sleep 10
  objShell.Run "command.exe"
  RunIt
End Sub

Open in new window

you only need to change command.exe to the full path and command of the file you want to run...
Presumably you're looking at crashing a computer though?  I'd advise to rethink what you're attempting.

you means command.exe should be replaced by c:\sample\my.vbs, if c:\sample\ if path of file need to be run.

But if the file is on cd then what will be the path? as cd drive varies from system to system?

I'm not sure of your requirements.
If you want a script to rerun the same executable over and over, the above will work for you - regardless of what you call it or where you place it.

If on the other hand, you're looking at scheduling the script using AT scheduler, then you would need to remove the wscript.sleep 10 line, however I don't believe the scheduler will let you use increments less than a minute...

If you're not willing to give me an idea of what you're trying to accomplish, so that I don't waste my time chasing several different 'possible' solutions, I won't take the time try.

Your initial question has been answered.  The site has rules on asking multiple questions inside a single thread.

Plus I don't understand what more you want, so since I can't read your mind, and you're not willing to clarify, please close this question...
