    WMI is "Windows Management Interface". It&#039;s just a set of objects you can instantiate from any language (just about) to manage Windows programmatically.<BR><BR>The example scripts are VBS files, but it could just as easily be VB or ASP or C#...<BR><BR>Yes, there are security issues, but a lot of people use it in an area that&#039;s secured using Windows Authentication so that they can validate user credentials (and have the ASP running under that user&#039;s context).<BR><BR>Craig.
