Windows ability to run javascript and VB scripts simply by double clicking them is a really useful way to automate simple tasks like batch/intelligent renaming of files, or for malware creators to easily distribute simple viruses.

However the best use for them is for pranking office coworkers who aren't aware of this ability of Windows and get their machine to randomly open the CD ROM drive or switch on Caps Lock or type the word 'arse' at random times.
