Start Bat, restart if closed?

Okay so we have a kiosk at work we got a while back. When you first log in it brings up a command line window that brings up the IE homepage. If you close out of either the homepage or the bat CMD that brought the home page up, it restarts IE and brings the homepage back up.Because it's a kiosk, this is handy because it restarts if the user exit's out of it.

Long story short, I had to delete the profile for reasons that don't matter and now it stopped working. Before I deleted it, I backed up the bat that opened the IE but I tried looking everywhere for whatever made that bat file open in the first place.

I looked to see if it was a scheduled task, another batch running, and I could not figure it out. It was none of them.


So can anyone tell me what they did, or how to make that bat open again automatically?


Just to recap, I have a bat file that opens up our internet homepage, if you close it, it opens back up again.

How do I do this again? I have the bat, I just need it to automatically open again like it was doing before. This is on a XP machine.
