There is a Registry entry you can set that will put IE in a open max all the time. I will post the Registry link Wednesday morning.

Hello...
Before you attempt to make changes to the registry, try this first:
Right-click the Internet Explorer icon in your taskbar or under Programs in your Start menu (not the large one on your Desktop) and click on Properties. Select the Shortcut tab. For the Run switch, select Maximized from the drop-down box.
Close IE and re-open. See if it then opens maximized for you.
That's one easy way to check.
Take Care...

small suggestion, open IE and maximize it, then use the File > Exit command to close it. then open it again. should retain the previous maximize seeting once opened from now on.

If I.E. is working properly, the last window size/position that was active should come back, next time I.E. is executed. Try this: Goto the "tools" pulldown, and select the "Internet Options". Click on the "advaced" Tab, and click on the "Reset web settings" tab at the bottom. This may help.
