I would like to know if it is possible to detect if the user attempted to launch the browser , use that event to activate another program , and depending on the usage of that program , allow the user access to the browser or not.

Thanx in advance.

Hi, i think this will help out:


The description for the freeware is this:

This component was born out of frustration, since I wasn't able to connect to an existing instance of Internet Explorer AND catch the events it fires. Using this component you can, and you can perform actions when a new instance is started or an existing instance moves to a new location.

Hope this helps :)
