Wscript.exe is teh Windows Scripting Host. It is a program designed to run _vbscript_, _javascript_ and Perl script files for automating the Windows desktop and other uses. It is what is used to interpret the script file found in the I Love You "virus". It is not a dangerous program, per se. The scripts that are interpreted by it may indeed be dangerous.
