Need help with VB Script coding

I'm a C# programmer and haven't done vbscript for years hence needing help here.  I have a script that reboots the pc .  It pops up a dialog that has a Yes and a No buttons that does the following.  
1.  I have a error in the syntax which I uploaded the error screen.  I can't see what the error is so appreciate help with this.  I'm using NotePad++ to edit this file.
2.  Would the code in Sub RebootPC work?  I got this code after googling online.
3.  This program will be run on Windows 7 PCs
Thank you.
If they click Yes then restart, if they click No, delay for 10 minutes, then prompt again.  
If they hit No a second time, delay 10 minutes, and then prompt again.
If they hit No a third time, delay 10 minutes and then prompt again.
On the 4th time, give them with a message that the computer will restart in 5 minutes with a count down, and then restart the box.

There were several changes.  

Needed parens around the parms on the .Popup call.

Changed several "sub" to "call" where you were calling (rather than defining) subs.

Added "do" before the "while".

Bill PrewCommented:
The error message doesn't make sense with that code, since there is no line 49 in it, are you sure you pasted the entire script you ran to produce that error?

Bill PrewCommented:
Found several syntax errors, here are some changes that should get past those.  Haven't checked the actual logic, didn't want to reboot at the moment...

'Give users 60 seconds to respond
const TIMEOUT = 60
dim numOfDelays
numOfDelays = 0
strComputer = "."
Set objShell = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell")

SUB RebootPc()	
			Set objFSO = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
			Set objWMIService = GetObject("winmgmts:" _
				& "{impersonationLevel=impersonate}!\\" & strComputer & "\root\cimv2")
			Set colProcessList = objWMIService.ExecQuery _
				("SELECT * FROM Win32_Process WHERE Name = 'explorer.exe'")
			For Each objProcess in colProcessList
			Set OpSysSet = GetObject("winmgmts:{(Shutdown)}//./root/cimv2").ExecQuery("select * from Win32_OperatingSystem where Primary=true")
			for Each OpSys in OpSysSet
				OpSys.Reboot( )
SUB DelayOrReboot()
		if(numOfDelays < 3) then
			numOfDelays = numOfDelays + 1
			Call RebootPc()	
		end if
End SUB	

do while iRetVal < 3
	iRetVal = objShell.Popup("Your computer will restart momentarily.  To restart immediately, click Yes. You can delay the reboot by 10 minutes each time you click the No button with a maximum of 3 delays.", TIMEOUT, "IT Maintenance", vbExclamation+vbYesNo+vbDefaultButton3)

	Select Case iRetVal
	 Case vbYes 
		Call RebootPc()	
	 Case vbNo
		Call DelayOrReboot()
	 Case Else	
		Call DelayOrReboot()
	End Select

Yes, you're absolutely correct!  I removed company heaader comments so that doesn't match up.  Please see the new screen shot.  Thank you.

See my post right above yours...

Great!  that does get rid of the error and the program is running.  I see the change in "call" sub.  Anything else you change to fix this?   Doesn't seem like change at line 33, iRetval = ....   Or is there changes needed?
Thank you.

I google for VB script syntax to put this together and those were what I found.  Thank you so much for the help.  I have another problem with the same code and appreciate it if you can help out.
