Restart time script problem

I was using the restart script from the above stickied reboot time post. It was working fine now all of a sudden it says Can't Fine script engine "VBScript" for script
I havnt done anything but uninstall mcafee and install comodo firewall with avast anti virus. Under associate programs it says .vbs VBScript script file is associated with Microsoft window based script host. Why am i getting this error?

Hello Urbwolf,

You might see if redownloading the Restart Time vbs shortcut to see if that may be it.

If not, then download and run the .VBS download in the tutorial below to restore it's default registry entries and associations to see if that may be it.

Hope this helps,

As a test, uninstall Comodo to see if that may be it. I have Avast installed as well without any problems from it.
