Dim strFilename,strReportFile ,HostsLine1,HostsLine2,objShell, strExecutable, objFSO, objTS, Computer
strFilename = "c:\Computers.txt"
strReportFile = "C:\report.txt"
HostsLine1 = "IP.IP.IP.IP      Name"
HostsLine2 = "IP.IP.IP.IP      Name"

Set objFSO = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
Set objTS = objFSO.OpenTextFile(strFilename)
Set objReport = objFSO.OpenTextFile(strReportFile, 8,True)

Do Until objTS.AtEndOfStream
      Computer = objTS.ReadLine
      objReport.Write Computer
      Set objHostsFile = objFSO.OpentextFile("\\"&Computer&"\c$\windows\system32\drivers\etc\hosts", 8)
            objReport.Write vbTab & Err.Number & vbTab & Err.Description
      objHostsFile.WriteLine HostsLine1
      objHostsFile.WriteLine HostsLine2
            objReport.WriteLine  vbTab & Err.Number & vbTab & Err.Description
      objHostsFile.Close
