Startup application wscript.exe is installed as part of the Windows 8 system to run Active scripts like JScript (.JS and .JSE files) and VBScript (.VBS and .VBE files).

If you see wscript.exe in your startup application list, you should find out what script file it is running to decide to keep it or not.
