http://vittoriop77.blogspot.com/2005/01/vbscript-write-registry-binary-value.html gives a decent example:
const HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE = &H80000002 
strKeyPath = "SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\wuauserv" 
strComputer = "." 
iValues = Array(&H00,&H00,&H00,&H00,&H00,&H00, 
&H00,&H00,&H00,&H00,&H00,&H00,&H03,&H00,&H00,&H00,&H53, 
&H00,&H65,&H00,&H01,&H00,&H00, &H00,&H60,&Hea,&H00,&H00, 
&H00,&H00,&H00,&H00,&H00,&H00,&H00,&H00, &H00,&H00,&H00, 
&H00,&H00,&H00,&H00,&H00) 
Set oReg=GetObject("winmgmts:{impersonationLevel=impersonate}!\\" 
& strComputer & "\root\default:StdRegProv") 
BinaryValueName = "FailureActions" 
oReg.SetBinaryValue HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE,strKeyPath, BinaryValueName,iValues

The array lines all need to be on one line:
const HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE = &H80000002 
strKeyPath = "SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\wuauserv" 
strComputer = "." 
iValues = Array(&H00,&H00,&H00,&H00,&H00,&H00,&H00,&H00,&H00,&H00,&H00,&H00,&H03,&H00,&H00,&H00,&H53, &H00,&H65,&H00,&H01,&H00,&H00, &H00,&H60,&Hea,&H00,&H00,&H00,&H00,&H00,&H00,&H00,&H00,&H00,&H00, &H00,&H00,&H00,&H00,&H00,&H00,&H00,&H00) 
Set oReg=GetObject("winmgmts:{impersonationLevel=impersonate}!\\" & strComputer & "\root\default:StdRegProv") 
BinaryValueName = "FailureActions" 
oReg.SetBinaryValue HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE,strKeyPath, BinaryValueName,iValues

This seems to be the same question as this one, where I answered with a working script. Can you refer to that question to see if that works for you?

> still same error

the error you receive for sirbounty's code is because of a cut-n-paste error.  He probably posted

   Array(&H00,&H00,&H00,&H00,...

but it somehow got messed up on the EE site as a result of encoding problems into what you see:

  Array(&H00,&H00,&H00,&H00,...

in other words: remove the "&" for "&".

@sirbounty:> The array lines all need to be on one line:

not really. But if you split lines in VBS, you need to end each line with a space and an underscore. See my previous post + solution for how I did that, to keep the code readable.

> will ur code change default value of failureactions?

the code of sirbounty uses a different replacement string as you may have seen by now, it starts out with different values.  He showed the code as an example of how you can do it, I think.

Use your own string (amended to the &H-style for VBS) or check my solution, which also uses your string, correctly amended.

@abel - the site I copied this from didn't have the continuation characters present in their, so that is why I made that statement...
