Solved Batch file won't open anything after IE until IE is closed?

August 9, 2012 at 19:14:29
Specs: Windows Server 2003
I have the following code, which is supposed to open Yahoo in a new browser window and then open Google as a tab in that window. The Yahoo window opens, however the Google site won't open until the Yahoo browser window is closed. I've tried taking out the timeout, so I know that's not the problem.

What am I missing?

@echo off
"%ProgramFiles(x86)%\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe" http://www.yahoo.com
timeout 2 /nobreak >nul
start /d /max "" "http://www.google.com"
