Windows 7: Windows Message box (vbs) problem

Windows Message box (vbs) problem

Until half an hour ago, I am 99.999% certain that all my vbs message boxes had the 'OK' button (or whatever the button(s) was/were supposed to be) set to the centre. Now something has happened and all the buttons are placed on the far right of the box (screenshots). If I create a new vbs message, the result is the same, the 'OK' button is placed on the right, which looks wong (or am I going crazy here?).

I have no idea what has made this happen all of a sudden. The only clue I can give is that, suddenly, by cursor changed for an arrow to a cross and I had to reboot to get the arrow back (nothing else I tried worked). From then the message boxes have been 'wrong'. System Restore (I made one just minutes before this happened) didn't help.

Must be a global thing as all my scripts now 'suffer' from this annoyance all of a sudden.


LATER: I find that if I copy a vbs script to another PC, it also shows the OK box on the right now! I am totally bewildered!!!

An example script would simply be:

Msgbox "?????????????????????????????????????", + vbSystemModal
