What is your Operating System?

And do you run the command from the command prompt?

Start -> run -> cmd (hit enter)

Command: start C:\"Program Files"\"Internet Explorer"\iexplore.exe


@"Don't put a question here" Why?

Then you'll have to adjust IE's settings. I'd tell you what setting to change, but I'm at work, where IE6 still the primary browser.

Since this action must take place from a script I will not have any access to changing the users IE settings. Older versions of IE had a "-new" option which opens a new session but alas not in IE8. If anyone has any additional ideas please post them. I can accomplish this thru Java Script but I was hoping to keep the language the same. Paul
