on failure, CWebBrowser2  launches Internet Explorer

I have an MFC app that runs JavaScript in a CWebBrowser2 (wrapper for IWebBrowser2). While testing, if I unplug my internet connection, I get an error return from GetIDsOfNames. I handle the error and my app is happy.

But for some reason unknown to me,  Internet Explorer is launched with a URL the same as my web page that CWebBrowser2 is requesting and then times out with the error "cannot display ....".

How do I stop Internet Explorer from launching?

Check you have a call to spawm iexplore.exe? Using CreateProcess/ShellExecute?

There is no create process. I am not doing the launching.

I did figure out a way to make it stop. I just was half a second after the error before closing the CWebBrowser2.

This seems a bit of a kludge, I still don't know why it was happening, but I did stop it.
