The code was missing a line. It should read:
Dim strKey, intValue, strType
set wshell = Wscript.CreateObject ("Wscript.Shell")
strKey = "HKCU\Software\JD\AllowWindowReuse"
intValue = 0
strType = "REG_DWORD"
wshell.RegWrite strKey, intValue, strType

        You can also set the following registry key:
Explorer\Main\AllowWindowReuse = 0
        A quick bit of WSH code is as follows:

                Dim strKey, intValue, strType
                strKey = "HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet
                intValue = 0
                strType = "REG_DWORD"
                wshell.RegWrite strKey, intValue, strType

        Hope that helps :)

                Tools -> Internet Options.  Under the Browsing heading,
remove the tick to Reuse windows for launching shortcuts. At least,
that's what it is for IE v6.

                        We are starting to use a new system, wich uses
Internet Explorer as a web-based client. 

                        The problem is when the user are using this web
based application, and for example recieve a link in an email and clicks
it, the link opens in the already open IE window, thus crashing the
application running there.

                        Has anybody a solution for forcing IE to open
links in a new window? Like most other browsers seem to do by default?
