Have I done this right? - VB Script
Starting with the wonderfully useful script provided on edugeek's wiki, I've tried to change it to only reset home folder ownership, as NTFS permissions are fine & changing them without any reason scares me.
Here is my attempt:
Set FSO = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
Set ObjShell = Wscript.CreateObject("Wscript.Shell")
ShowSubfolders FSO.GetFolder("I:\path to folder containing home holders")
For Each Subfolder in Folder.SubFolders
WScript.Echo "Folder = " & Subfolder
userName = SubFolder.Name
CMDLine2 = "chown -r " & userName & " """ & Subfolder & "\*.*"""
WScript.Echo "Running CHOWN..."
Would someone with a better understanding of VB than me see if I have made a stupid mistake!?

The only thing that stands out as wrong to me is that you aren't setting the CMDLine1 variable to anything before you later try to use it on the line "ObjShell.Run CMDLine1", is it just that you haven't pasted that bit of the script or did you forget to declare it?

Considering the OP:

Looks fine except for the cmdline1 bit - just delete the whole line:
