batch file question

I created a batch file for a bunch of programs I only want running when I' on the internet

this is it;

Code:
@echo off
start "cookie wall" "C:\Program Files\AnalogX\CookieWall\cookie.exe" /B

start "internet explorer" "http://www.osnn.net/forum/search.php?do=getnew /B

start "star downloader" "C:\Program Files\Star Downloader\stardown.exe" /B

start "clip trak" "C:\Program Files\ClipTrak\ClipTrak.exe" /B

start "ad watch" "C:\Program Files\Lavasoft\Ad-Aware SE Plus\Ad-Watch.exe" /B
everything works perfectly, EXCEPT;

the internet browser laucnhes, claims it found osnn, then it says it's finnished, and yet the page is blank...I refresh does the same thing

however, if I hit the home page button, the site loads like normal.

any ideas?

When I run that line, it opens up a new tab in my Firefox window (since Fx is set as my default browser), but it does the same thing - blank page. Looking at the location/address box, it seems like the /B option gets tagged onto the end of the URL.
Try changing the line to:
Code:
start /B "internet explorer" "http://www.osnn.net/forum/search.php?do=getnew"
