Prevent browser session from starting

Hi Experts,

I've automated the installation of a workstation using SCCM. One of the applications that is installed during this process, automatically starts an IE browser session when it's done.

Is there a way to prevent the browser from starting? I tried to kill the process after it started using taskkill.exe in a script. It kills the proces, but when i start the browser after that, it generates the message that the browser hasn't been closed correctly the last time.

If i can't prevent it, is there a way to close the browser in a correct way?

You can use this to close the browser

Get-Process iexplore | Foreach-Object { $_.CloseMainWindow() }

You can save it in a script and run after some time when that application is finished.
