Default Problems with creating folders

Hi all,

I have a problem with creating home folders on a share. Here is the code:
Const USER_ROOT_UNC = "\\server\drive"

   Dim objDomain
   Dim objUser
   Dim vReturn

Dim WshShell, WshNetwork, objFS, strUser

Set WshShell = Wscript.CreateObject("Wscript.Shell")
Set WshNetwork = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Network")
Set objFS = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")

   ReDim vReturn(0)

   ' Connect to the domain

Set objDomain = GetObject("LDAP://ou=cool,dc=stock,dc=com")
   ' apply a filter to retrieve only objects of class User
   objDomain.Filter = Array("User")

   ' iterate all user objects within the container
   For Each objUser In objDomain

If objUser.class = "user" then

      If Trim(vReturn(0)) <> "" Then
         ReDim Preserve vReturn(UBound(vReturn) + 1)
      End If
      vReturn(UBound(vReturn)) = objUser.samAccountName

   strUser = objUser.sn & "." & objUser.givenName
End If

    If objFS.FolderExists("") Then
          Call objFS.CreateFolder("USER_ROOT_UNC & "\" & strUser")
          Call WshShell.Run("cacls " & USER_ROOT_UNC & "\" & strUser & _
          " /e /g Administrator:F", HIDE_WINDOW, WAIT_ON_RETURN)
          Call WshShell.Run("cacls " & USER_ROOT_UNC & "\" & strUser & _
          " /e /g " & strUser & ":C", HIDE_WINDOW, WAIT_ON_RETURN)
    End If


Highlighted in red is the area that I am having problems with. Basically I know that you can have this code echo out everytime that a folder exists and hit ok and it will continue on. But what if there are hundreds of folders? So I want the code to just continue on if it comes to an existing folder. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
