I need to run a script to shutdown certain computers on my domain, that I exported in list form from AD.

I have the below script from an earlier and closed post here. It however isn't working. I get the following error.

Script: C:\documents and settings\user\desktop\restarts.vbs
Error:File not found
Code 800A0035
Source: Microsoft VBScript runtime error

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
strInputFile = "C:\PCNames.txt"
Set objFSO = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
Set wshShell = WScript.CreateObject ("")
Const intForReading = 1
Set objInputFile = objFSO.OpenTextFile(strInputFile, intForReading, False)
While Not objInputFile.AtEndOfStream
      strComputer = objInputFile.ReadLine
      If Ping(strComputer) = True Then "shutdown -s -f -t 01 -m \\" & strComputer , 6, True
	  End If
Set objInputFile = Nothing
Function Ping(strComputer)
      Dim objShell, boolCode
      Set objShell = CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
      boolCode = objShell.Run("Ping -n 1 -w 300 " & strComputer, 0, True)
      If boolCode = 0 Then
            Ping = True
            Ping = False
      End If
End Function
