Dos command to open internet explorer without toolbar or menubar

Hi I need a way to show an html page in a browser without the address bar, tool bars or drop-down menu lists showing. Its for a CD Autorun splash screen. When the cd is inserted the internet explorer window should come up without these being visible. Im stuck on how to remove the toolbars etc.

Thanks heaps

you can try
"C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore" -k URL
where URL is the address of your page.

Craig, I'm seconding WelkinMaze's approach above on this.  the "-k" is "Kiosk Mode" of IE.  

iexplorer.exe should be in the path so you could just use:

iexplore.exe -k pagename

Don't forget to put the pagename in  quotation marks if you're accessing it in a location that has spaces in the path.

Without Space:

iexplore -k d:\neatpage.html

With spaces:

iexplore -k "c:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Desktop\anotherneatpage.html"

Hope that adds some more clarification!
