Windows 7: How to run multiple separate instances of IE

How to run multiple separate instances of IE


Long story short:
I need to run 10-15 ish browser-windows of a webpage, at the same time, without the instances "knowing" about each other. They need to be as separated as if they where running on different machines/clients.

I want to believe this is possible, in that (for example) my old workplace had these computers in which the browsers where modified so that they where completely cut off the main system (no connection to the local system w.s.e (running on the network)).

My case:
In the browser-windows, on the server, there's a flash movie that's playing. It will stop if another is activated and played. I need to run multiple of these at the same time, but it's a bit tricky...

Any help on this subject is widely appreciated :)

These are not going to be 100% stable as they play will dlls to achieve their stand alone/side by side capabilities

Utilu IE Collection -

These would work, but unsure if you can have that many running at once

BSOD Multiple Instances/Possible Causes
I have a Dell Inspiron, 64 bit, that runs on Windows 7. Forgive me if I put a n00bish post, but I am at the end of my rope here. I wanted to try and fix it myself before coming here but I'm desperate. Sometime in November, my computer bluescreened out of the blue. I didn't think much of it at...

How can I run multiple instances of MP?
I'm trying to compare original .mov files to variations of transcoded .avi files. I really need to see them side by side, preferably 3 screens at once. I tried pinning MP to the task bar and shift-clicking but nothing happens. If this is not possible, could you recommend a player that would...
