Internet Explorer starts before the network is connected and therefore doesn't display the home page. You'll have to refresh the screen before the page is displayed. Since the staff are using a kiosk and no keyboard, this is causing problem to them. Is there a way to delay IE startup to display only after the Internet is connected? I hope someone will with this.

You can use the free version (called Standard) of Startup Delayer:

The kiosks we use, IE delays when you login with the Administrator account. Any user account you create, IE starts up with the page cannot be display. Also we don't have much disk space so I'll like to have a solution without installing any application.

I don't have access to a computer at the moment but perhaps it's possible to tell ie to only run when there's network connection:

Apart from using the schedule task, is there another way doing this? The kiosks we have, for instance, have IE delayed until Internet is connected, when using the administrator account. This was setup by the manufacturer. But any other account, IE starts with the page cannot be displayed. Is there a way to delay IE using the registry?

You could write a batch file, ie:

@echo off
ping -n 30 localhost > nul
start "title" "c:\program files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe"

Where the 30 is seconds delay.
I dunno any other way of doing it.
