How do I set folder permissions with VBScript

I have a vb script that removes a desktop shortcut and a Start Menu folder from each colProfile on a workstation
The Good: The script works perfectly on newer builds of XP

The Bad: On older builds the script runs and removes the desktop shortcut but does not remove the Start Menu folder.
I am thinking that with older builds the permissions allowing the current logged on user to modify the Start Menu.
Is there a solution to reset the permissions to allow the script to run. Maybe a VBScript so i can roll it out to about 150 users. All help will be greatly appreciated

If you have the script already, why not have the script run through GPO?  Just make sure you put the new script on in the same folder as your GPO.

Easiest way to do this is, launching Group Policy Managment:
Go under "Group Policy Object", find the policy you are wanting to apply or create a new one.
Edit the policy

Under the policy editor:
Browse down to "Computer Configuration\Policies\Windows\Settings"
You'll see "Startup", doublclick
click "Add", then "Browse"

Open explorer window, browse to your script file, highlight it.  alt-click and copy.  Go back to your "Browse" window, alt-click, paste.

select the file, then click ok, ok.

This will now launch when the computer starts up.  This runs at the computer level, not at user level.  Therefore it will have admin rights to system resources.

Remember if you created another policy, you need to make sure you link the object to the OU (organization units) container that have the computers.
