Open URL in new session of Internet Explorer

I have an internet shortcut on my desktop (.url extension). When I have Internet explorer open and i double click on the desktop shortcut the page loads in the existing session of IE. How do I get the page to open in a new session of IE? I don't want to open a new session of IE first or use favorites. I just want to double click the shortcut from the desktop.

Sorry for the mis-info.  I have the option listed above and my co-workers do not.  The only difference is that I just downloaded and installed 5.01 and they still have 5.00.  Unchecking the option listed DOES work so if it is worth upgrading. . .

If you are using IE5.x, goto Tools/Internet Options/Advanced.  Find the check box labled "Reuse windows to launch shortcuts" and uncheck it.

I have an option named Launch browser windows in a new process checked, but I don't see that option available.
