As a fix (though this isn't a Windows list), you can change the
registry to associate VBS files with notepad instead of the script
shells. RUn regedit, then under


modify (make backup copy too, if you like) to

    c:\windows\notepad.exe %1

Also, you might rename c:\windows\command\cscript.exe
and c:\windows\wshell.exe, which are what the above
originally pointed to.
