I am trying to create a script that will list all users on a computer and then save that file as the computer name to a specified directory.  Not knowing much about vbscript, I have googled and come up with the script below that will somewhat work.  The issue  with this script is that it displays a box on the screen for each user account.  

I would like to modify this script so that is will save the output to C:\kworking and name the file the same as the computer name.  I've tried but with my little scripting experience I'm getting nowhere fast.  I'm sure an expert can modify this in a few seconds.

Thanks for any input!

Const HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE = &H80000002

strComputer = "."
 
Set objRegistry=GetObject("winmgmts:\\" & _
    strComputer & "\root\default:StdRegProv")
 
strKeyPath = "SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\ProfileList"
objRegistry.EnumKey HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE, strKeyPath, arrSubkeys
 
For Each objSubkey In arrSubkeys
    strValueName = "ProfileImagePath"
    strSubPath = strKeyPath & "\" & objSubkey
    objRegistry.GetExpandedStringValue HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE,strSubPath,strValueName,strValue
    Wscript.Echo strValue

the Windows Scripting Host is 2 parts, Cscript, and wscript

Execute your script with "CScript.exe myscript.vbs" and it will run in console mode

To change the default interpreter, type "cscript //h:cscript //s" from a administrative command prompt

you can then output this to a folder by executing
cscript myscript.vbs >  C:\kworking\%computername%.txt
