    Is it possible to use a seperate process when creating a new window from
    within Internet Explorer? In particular I would like IE to start a new
    process when javascript:eek:pen() is used.

    Hi Tahg,

    Tools>Internet Options - Advanced tab, uncheck "Re-use windows for launching
    shortcuts (when tabbed browsing is enabled)"

    If you specify, "_blank") IE will open multiple
    windows of the same url (surl) when the link is clicked multiple times.

    If you specify, "myWindow") IE will only open up
    one window with the surl address, no matter how many times the link is

    The same with hyperlinks <a href="<%=sulr%>" target="_blank">Open multiple
    <a href="<%=sulr%>" target="myWindow">Open one myWindow only, no matter how
    many times I click</a>

    The javascript call is in a page I'm accessing and is beyond my control.
    It's written to reuse the same window no matter how much I click the link.
    Either way is fine for me, that's not the problem.

    As I originally asked, I want to know if it's possible to create a new
    _process_ for new windows. I use plugins such as java and flash a lot and
    they tend to crash IE occasionally. I would like to be able to isolate them
    in their own browser processes.
    I use IE7.

  4. I always get a new IE task when starting IE using the Start menu. YMMV.
    A more reliable way to get a new task is to use the -new switch on the command line (e.g. via the Run... dialog.)
