Actually only way is to run a .reg file
Not something you users would want I bet

An alternative is to use an xml dataisland, get the data from there and use innerHTML to update

Due to security reasons, IE will now allow javascript to access the click sound in order to control it.

The click sound is a system setting and allowing access to it through a web scripting language would open up a whole new set of problems for Microsoft. The click sound is just something you will have to live with and if you think it will annoy your visitors to hear the click sound, kindly suggest that they turn down their speakers.

Cheers

try

function reload() {
   setTimeout("location.href='mypage.php'",6000);
   }

or more simply

onload="setTimeout("location.href='mypage.php'",6000);"

in the body tag

<body onload="setTimeout("location.href='mypage.php'",6000);">

They have an iframe and in that iframe they have the code
<script>
stmh = setTimeout('window.location.reload()',90000)
</script>

that will reload the page every 9 seconds using javaSCRIPT. Java is another animal all together
