Launch Internet Explorer windows as separate processes.

This setting specifies whether a new process is created for each instance of Internet Explorer that you start. This can prevent one instance of Explorer from affecting other instances if it stops responding.

Tweak for : Windows 98, Windows Me, Windows XP, Windows 2003, Windows 2000
The "Launch browser windows in a separate process" option was available on the Advanced tab in versions of Internet Explorer earlier than version 5.01. After that, this option isn't available any more in Internet Explorer 5.01 or 5.5. By using this tweak you can setup this option even in later versions.

For this, go to Start > Run menu, enter “regedit” and navigate to the registry path listed below. If the subkey “\BrowseNewProcess” does not exist, create it as explained below. Then, create a string value “BrowseNewProcess” in the right panel.

Now, right-click and modify its value to “yes” for launching browser windows in a separate process, or “no” for not launching separate process.

The changes take effect after a restart or logoff.
