How to keep the WebBrowser control from using resources (Dispose method for VB?)

Dear Experts,

I use a webbrowser control in many VB and Access applications and they always use an awful lot of resources. I've recently learned of a Dispose method that can effectively shut the webbrowser up (so to speak). But I don't know the right syntax to use it in VB/VBA (if it can be used there at all).

So my question is two-fold:
- How to use the Dispose method in VB/VBA
- How to stop the webbrowser control from using all my resources

Thanks!

The trick is to put a Webbrowser1.Stop

In the Webbrowser1_DownloadComplete event.
