Windows 7: How to open one program multiple times independent of each other

Depends. In a program like IE, Open up one instance and create a new tab. Pull that new tab down a bit and you have a new instance. In another program, like word. Open up one instance and middle click the icon. (If using a laptop you might be able to setup something like having right and left click pressed at the same time be middle click.)

Dragging an IE tab into a new window should not create a new instance. An instance = a separate process. What version of IE are you referring to?
