I'm setting up a few PCs to be public ecommerce kiosks.

I've created a kiosk.bat file in startup ...
iexplore.exe -k www.mysite.com

but the OS won't accept the command. I've also edited the IE shortcut
properties but can't save it. Is this the right way to do this or can
someone give me a link or registry key to safely launch this?

Thanks

Place the batch in your Internet Explorer folder and add
http:// so you have:

iexplore -k http://www.mysite.com

Similar to above. The target should look like:

"c:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\IEXPLORE.EXE" -k
http://www.mysite.com

without the obvious line wrap.
