GUI for HTA will not refresh once VBscript Function has been called.

Last Modified: 2012-05-05
I've got an HTA that processes all machines with a specific machine naming convention and cleans the local profiles on that machine older than X ammount of days.  I've got the HTA looping through the vbscript for each machine and folder it processes.  The GUI is set to show what machine and what folder is processing, but it only updates if I give it a msgbox break.

How else can I force the GUI to update before processing the entry?
