This should do it..
Set objFSO = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
Set objOut = objFSO.CreateTextFile ("C:\JPGReport.txt")
Set objFolder = objFSO.GetFolder("C:\")
 
Set colFiles = objFolder.Files
For Each objFile in colFiles
  If LCase(Right(objFile.Name, 3)) = "jpg" Then objOut.WriteLine file
Next
 
ScanFolders objFSO.GetFolder("C:\")
objOut.Close
wscript.quit
 
Sub ScanFolders(strFolder)
    For Each strSubFld in strFolder.SubFolders
        Set objFolder = objFSO.GetFolder(strSubFld.Path)
        Set colFiles = objFolder.Files
        For Each objFile in colFiles
          If LCase(Right(objFile.Name, 3)) = "jpg" Then objOut.WriteLine file
        Next
        ScanFolders strFolder
    Next
End Sub

Why not simply use a DOS command as in:

   dir /a-d /b /s c:\*.jpg >jpgfiles.txt

The results can be viewed by opening the JPGFILES.TXT in notepad etc...

OBVIOUSLY, he has a reason for doing it in VB. I wouldn't be surprised if he's got an assignment for school that he's trying to get some help with.
