wscript.exe is a windows application. its better to delete boot.vbs or virusremoval.vbs

go to system32 folder and change the permission of those files from the command prompt to -a -r -h -s. then you can delete them.

along with those files, there can be other files like imapd.dll, imapd.exe and so on. they are also virus files and you can do similar with them as well.

there will be another file called isetup.exe in the documents and settings folder which is hidden. you have to delete that as well.

then comes the registry cleaning part.
