This is a very simple question. Is it possible to modify the script below to prompt for a username and then disable that username? I have absolutely zero experience in vbs so I do not even know where to begin. Any help would be great!
Const ADS_UF_ACCOUNTDISABLE = 2
 
Set objUser = GetObject _
("LDAP://cn=myerken,ou=management,dc=fabrikam,dc=com")
intUAC = objUser.Get("userAccountControl")
 
objUser.Put "userAccountControl", intUAC OR ADS_UF_ACCOUNTDISABLE
objUser.SetInfo

Try this...test it first with a test user...
On Error Resume Next
 
Const ADS_SCOPE_SUBTREE = 2
Const ADS_UF_ACCOUNTDISABLE = 2
strUser= InputBox("Enter username")
 
Set objConnection = CreateObject("ADODB.Connection")
Set objCommand =   CreateObject("ADODB.Command")
objConnection.Provider = "ADsDSOObject"
objConnection.Open "Active Directory Provider"
Set objCommand.ActiveConnection = objConnection
 
objCommand.Properties("Page Size") = 1000
objCommand.Properties("Searchscope") = ADS_SCOPE_SUBTREE 
 
objCommand.CommandText = "SELECT distinguishedName FROM 'LDAP://dc=fabrikam,dc=com' WHERE objectCategory='user' " & _
        "AND samaccountname = '" & strUser & "'" 
Set objRecordSet = objCommand.Execute
 
objRecordSet.MoveFirst
Do Until objRecordSet.EOF
    strDN = objRecordSet.Fields("distinguishedName").Value
    objRecordSet.MoveNext
Loop
 
Set objUser = GetObject("LDAP://" & strDN)
 
intUAC = objUser.Get("userAccountControl")
objUser.Put "userAccountControl", intUAC OR ADS_UF_ACCOUNTDISABLE
objUser.SetInfo

That worked perfect! And now I have a good example for any other scripts that I made need to do this to in the future.

Thanks again!
