Open IE seperate process and seperate window

    Ok, here is a good puzzle.
    I need to automate opening two IE (independent windows) on two monitors.

    Here is the reason: I have a security guard that has to monitor two 16
    channel DVR windows 24/7 and if the power fails, and / or the system is
    rebooted, needs to open and logon automatically without keyboard interaction.
    (keyboard / mouse has been removed).

    Here is the setup:
    I have two Security Camera systems (DVR) that have web interfaces.
    I have a computer setup with dual monitors
    I have the system to auto logon.
    I can manually open new IE sessions in seperate windows, then open both DVR
    web browsers by typing in the IP address. DVR1 is open on monitor 1 and DVR2
    is open on monitor 2. Both are Full screen.

    DVR 1 = HTTP:// (Ip entered is example only)
    DVR 2 = HTTP:// (Ip entered is example only)

    What I have done so far:
    I set a autologon account to log on to windows upon restart. So I have got
    past that hurdle.

    Next, I need to either have a shortcut to open IE in two seperate windows
    and put DVR1 window on monitor 1 and DVR2 window on monitor 2

    I have tried to automate this using a cmd prompt but can't figure out how to
    open two seperate instances and place the windows... the following commands
    only overwrite each other in one window in ie7. I also tried to uncheck
    "reuse windows" advanced option but then both open in two tabs inside one IE
    window. Neither of which will work for my purpose.
    ~start example cmd script
    start "c:\program files\internet explorer\iexplore.exe"
    start "c:\program files\internet explorer\iexplore.exe"
    ~end script

    Can any one out there assist in a solution?

    On the security guards' profilie.

    Start>Progams>Startup folder

    Add 2 shortcuts (from folder view File>New Shortcut)

    "c:\program files\internet explorer\iexplore.exe" ""


    "c:\program files\internet explorer\iexplore.exe" ""

    um?? I am not sure??? you may have better performance if you use a different
    port for each stream.. (see the :100 at the end of your uri's).

    Which Security Zone are these uri's appearing in. They should be in your
    Intranet zone. Check that the browser is correctly detecting intranet sites
    and that you have not placed one of these uri's in your Trusted Zones list.
    See Internet Options - Security, Intranet zone.
