Can you Have Separate IE Configurations Under the Same Login Session?

My accounting user is required by the bank to use lower security settings when she accesses bank functions.  This leaves her browser in a unsecured state for other sites, obviously not a good thing.  The user is not savvy enough to change browser settings on her own.  Is it possible to create startup icons that would open IE with different configuration settings (not necessarily opening both at the same time)?

Thanks.  I look a look at the link, but I am unclear on how this kit can help my situation.  I don't need to change browser configurations for all workstations on the network, just the one accounting station when it needs to scan.  Is there a feature that addresses this?

yes this will setup sec settings as well and this can work for 1 pc to the whole network.

I've even used it to customize my IE8 to have custom settings just for my personal pc.

Thank you.  This is worth exploring further.  

As it turned out, the security settings were so low that IE would not let her on any other site without having it automatically fix the settings.  Whatever it did allowed her full internet access but the bank processes are still working.  Good job, Microsoft, and thank you Remixedcat.
