We have Intranet pages that relate to a VB 6 progrram I am writing.  I need to be able to call up the Intranet page, but not allow them to call up other pages after the page has been called up.  Is there a way to call up IE but disable and hide the address bar?  BTW, this is probably more urgent than difficult, and thanks in advance for any help.

dmmorse,

You might be able to do this by adding the Microsoft Internet Controls (shdocvw.dll) to your project, and placing one on a form, sizing it as you see fit.  Alt-T or right click the component bar, then choose components.  Scroll down to Microsoft Internet Controls and check the box)

Private Sub Form_Load()
WebBrowser1.Navigate "http://localhost/default.asp" ' Choose whatever URL you want.
End Sub

That's all there is to it.  By default, the control does not have an address, link, or status bar.  Give it a try and see if it's something that fits your needs.

This will do it for you :

Private Sub Form_Load()
Dim IE As Object
Set IE = CreateObject("internetexplorer.application")
    IE.navigate "http://www.google.com"
    IE.Visible = True
    IE.addressbar = False
    IE.toolbar = False
    While IE.busy: DoEvents: Wend
End Sub

I couldn;'t get the first answer to work.  It was probably correct, but I must have been doing something wrong, so I tried the second solution and it was very slick.  Thanks for all your help
