Ever been on PC where Internet Explorer was blocked?
One solution would be to use a portable version of Firefox on a USB drive, or you can access a hidden browser in Microsoft HTML Help program if removable media is not an option. This was tested on Windows XP SP2 with Internet Explorer 6 and Internet Explorer 7.
Open calculator. You can do this quickly with Windows button+R on your keyboard, type calc in the run box, click OK.
In Microsoft Calculator go to Help -> Help Topics.
Now right click on the left hand side of the title bar and click on Jump To URL
Type in the URL including the http:// and off you go. Repeat to visit other sites.
Essentially this is Internet Explorer embedded inside of the HTML Help application. Adobe Flash isn’t working in my hidden browser, but a quick visit to Adobe took care of it.
