The following line of code will start internet explorer:
ShellExecute(NULL, "open", "iexplore", "axter.com", NULL, SW_SHOWNORMAL);

You can use the SetTimer API function along with a call back function, and that will allow you to launch IE over and over again.

um, just out of curiosity, why do you need that program? It sounds like one of those annoying programs the jerks run on public computers just to piss everyone off. Sorry if im wrong, but i'd just like to know.

To Spyder596
This is a program for my personal use and not for any public computer.
All i need the thing to do is start ie, wait, close it and disconect, then repeat.
And the public computers dont have a isp to disconect from because most of them are connected to the networ


and to Axter i will add more points to it as the days pass
the reason i started with such a small amount is because
1 i just registered
2 i think this little program should be a snap for even a beginner to make. all it is is a timed program starting and ending.

Sorry about that, its just that in my school theres a lot of jerks who take the computer science courses because they think its an easy gpa boost, but wind up wasting their knowledge writing programs that do nothing but mess with the public computers in the library and such.

But yeah, that would be pretty simple to write, if i can get time tonight ill whip something up

Experts at EE are not suppose to make the program/code for you.  We're suppose to help you with existing code, or to point you in the right direction.
