Okay.. so i was going through this website to check if i could find something useful with regards to restarting windows services on remote computers and guess what.. i did find something pretty useful. The HTA script can be found @

Now, I will be honest I am not an expert with vbscript and know only a few basics of that. What is was looking for is if there is a way to query only some specific services rather than listing all of them as most of the services will be be touched. I am looking to include only services that are related to my application.

Also, it'd be great if I could have a dropdown list to enter the remote host name rather than a text box as it is quite difficult to remember the hostnames of around 60 servers :)

P.S :: This HTA would be run on a legacy Windows 2003 server (yeah i know what you are thinking unfortunately I am struck with these)
