            process.StartInfo.WindowStyle = ProcessWindowStyle.Normal;

            process.Start();

            // Wait for 2 minutes, and then close.

Thank you so much for your response! It works great... Is there a way to close the web page after the 2 minutes?

Maybe this instead of that last line:

System.Threading.Sleep( 120000 );
If( !process.HasExited() )
{
  process.CloseMainWindow();
}

The process.WaitForExit(120000); will wait for 2 minutes, and then if the user hasn't closed the browser, should close it itself.
