https://blogs.technet.microsoft.com/kevinholman/2016/01/24/writing-a-service-recovery-script-cluster-service-example/
like:
Sub ServiceStart(strService)
    Dim objWMIService, colRunningServices, objService, colServiceList
    Set objWMIService = GetObject("winmgmts:" _
        & "{impersonationLevel=impersonate}!\\" & strComputer & "\root\cimv2")
    Set colServiceList = objWMIService.ExecQuery _
        ("Select * from Win32_Service where Name='"& strService & "'")
    For Each objService in colServiceList
        errReturn = objService.StartService()
    Next
End Sub

The script works. You probably forgot the run it through administrator rights. If you log in as administrator (or someone with admin rights), double clicking on the VBS still doesn't work. You need to start an admin cmd box, then start the VBS.
It's either that, or use scheduled tasks to get it to work.
