You have som options with a msgbox in vbscript. You can choose the buttons and the msgbox image (not custom but preset, like the big X or the exclamation or question mark etc...)
For now just check these values....

Here is the Number for the buttons
0   "Ok" button
1   "Ok" AND "Cancel" buttons
2  "Abort", 'Retry", AND "Ignore" buttons
3   "Yes", 'No", AND "Cancel" buttons
4   "Yes" AND "No" button
5  "Retry" AND "Cancel" button

If you want to set the default button of the msgbox...
0   The first button from the left is the default button
256   The second button from the left is the default button
512   The third button from the left is the default button  

Now the images....
16   Big X in red circle
32   Question Mark
48   exclamation mark
64  Information
0   Blank
Now.. how to use these settings? Simple...
msgbox "Hello", ##, "Hello msgbox Title"
where the ## you put the number you want according to chart.  But what if you want Yes and No button, with exclamation mark for icon?  You ADD the 2 numbers.  
Yes and No button = 4
Exclamation Mark = 48
Total = 52
so msgbox "Hello", 52, "Hello msgbox title"

You cant add a custom made image for your msgbox.  If you would do it in VB6 for example, you could simply create a form that looks like a msgbox beside that you are very limited.
Hope this is what you wanted
