See this article for examples and a discussion of some of the problems with using vbscript to create scheduled tasks:

It's usually easier to use the SCHTASKS command in a batch script, e.g.
schtasks /create /RU "NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM" /SC DAILY /TN Reboot /TR "shutdown -r -f -t 600" /st 22:00:00

See this page for syntax:
