Hi guys, i tried this;

objExplorer.Navigate "http://dir-helpdesk/jos/rdPage.aspx?&rdReport=JOS_panel" 'doel waar het script naartoe gaat  
objExplorer.Visible = 1 'betekend dat het scherm open en zichtbaar is
objExplorer.Location.Reload(True)

but this also won't work, it get's the pages ones and just show that same page every time, no updates.
I really need this script to work help!

You should set the expiration time to a few seconds, or otherwise tell the btowser to not use the cache.

DanRollins,

Thanks for the advice, but i need to do this in vbscript way, so from within the script.
So i need a line or to clear the cache every run or to get the page directly from the server bypassing the cache.

Can you help with that?

If you can change the script on a page, you can typically change other things in the page, such a meta-tags and headers.  Is that not the case here?
If you can chenge the headers, then send these:
    Cache-Control: no-cache
    Pragma: no-cache
    Expires: -1

See the syntax for the
    Navigate Method:

Note he final parameter allows you to send additional headers
