I do not want to set the site as the home page, but would like for IE to actual open up to this site when a user logs in.  The home page needs to stay the current Intranet site.

You dont really need a script to do that. It can be done from a shortcut or a single command line :
 
1. Start > Run > Iexplore.exe www.bbc.co.uk 
2. Create a new shortcut and point it to :
"C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe" www.bbc.co.uk 
 
or the VBS :
 
Set WshShell = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
Return = WshShell.Run("iexplore.exe www.bbc.co.uk", 1)

Have you looked at using a GPO to open the website at logon insteand of a login script?

if you use a GPO it would be easy to set up

first you would need to set up the computer configuration policy to start IE when the user logs in and thenm in the user configuration policy you would need to set up the defult home page as the site you want opened and lock it down.

hope that helps

You could use Group Policy to create a web shortcut in the users startup folder. Will not need to change the home page.
