Getting a start with scripting in NT

By daryl_s ·
Hi everyone
My boss has given me a task of developing a script that can automatically closes Internet Explorer after a set period of activity. This tasks is part learning experience part beneficial development for the corporate network. I have sources a few resources/documentation, but am a little unsure as to how to approach this problem. Can anyone recommend any good starting points (web site/references etc)to kick off with?

Thanks in advance

Hi
you could try a simple at command in a batch file. This could be set at various times of the day to close internet explorer.
Hope this helps.

Thanks, but I don't think that would really work. I made a slight error in my question, I should have put after a period of inactivity. What we are aiming to do is prevent users from opening internet explorer and leaving the connection open all day unless they are using it.

The best NT scripting bookk I know is "Windows NT Shell Scripting" by Tim Hill. What you want to do is monitor a process and turn that process off after a certain amount of inacvitity. This requires a monitoring tool. What are you using to monitor the IE browser activity? When you have that issue resolved then you can create a script to react to your trigger.
