hey all... i have never used powershell - still chose to use vbscript but I gave a stab. It seems that this code works and maybe not all that is needed.

I had to pull some reg keys, services with states and local users status.

My script works and dumps it into a txt file but I wanted to throw it into a html as would look ever so much better...

can someone, who may be bored (lol) be willing to help me out?

end result is a 2 row table...

Item......................Result

this actually just dumps them all into 1 row but hey html!!!!
