This is my first post on the forum, excuse me if I am in the wrong category.

I have done a search but couldn't find any previous solutions.

What I am trying to do is sort  a simple bat file, that will close all instances of IE running, and reopen an instance of it.

I have a display screen that displays info from a live SQL database, as such periodicaly it drops the display when there is a conflict.
What I am trying to do is build a batch file to close IE and reopen it, and add it as a scheduled task to start every morning, and run every half hour.

What I have done so far is just a simple "stop iexplore.exe" "start iexplore.exe"

This opens a new instance of IE but doesn't close the previous.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Cheers

Alex

OK, while I was pondering this I decided to change things a bit.

I have now moved to a vb script as i decide to refine my requirements a bit.

Now I want to have all instances of iexplore.exe close, and reopen a single instance in kiosk type mode.

This is where I am up to so far.

set Shell = createobject("wscript.shell")

Shell.run "iexplore -k http://192.168.1.10/warehousemgt/view4.asp"


So now I just need to add the closing of the open active instance of iexplore.exe first.

Any ideas?
