There are actually a couple of issues... one is removing the element and the other is getting the browser to forget it was asked to do a refresh.

There are a few ways to remove the element, each relies on forst getting an object reference to it alone, suggest _IETagnameGetCollection($oIE, "meta") using an index if it is always in the same position or loop through the resulting collection looking at _IEPropertyGet innerHTML for a match (oe the .content or .http-evuiv properties).

Once you have a reference in, for example, $oMeta you can:

1) _IEPropertySet($oMeta, "outerhtml", "") or

2) $oMeta.removeNode()

I have never test the second method...

I don't know if the browser will honor the deletion - please test.

It may also be possible to set the .content value to 0 or some huge number and the browser may note the change and turn off or effectively turn off refresh.
