"timer" is a very generic term. Please be specific.

It means that what you tried did not produce the results you expected. It begs the questions 1) what did you try?, 2) what did you expect? and 3) what happened instead?

Doesn't it work by just editing the meta tags out on the fly? I know I did something similar once. - Not related to timers though...

Well, it was just a test I was doing, I don't think I have the script anymore, but it used the IE.au3 UDF to edit the html on the fly...

Something like:

$oMetas = _IETagnameGetCollection($oIE, "meta")
ConsoleWrite("Meta tags found: " & @extended & @CR) ; for debug
For $oMeta in $oMetas
    ConsoleWrite(_IEPropertyGet($oMeta, "outerhtml") & @CR) ; for debug
    If StringInStr(_IEPropertyGet($oMeta, "outerhtml"), "refresh") Then 
        _IEPropertySet($oMeta, "outerhtml", "")
    EndIf
Next

;Show we got rid of it
$oMetas = _IETagnameGetCollection($oIE, "meta")
ConsoleWrite("Meta tags found: " & @extended & @CR) ; for debug
For $oMeta in $oMetas
    ConsoleWrite(_IEPropertyGet($oMeta, "outerhtml") & @CR)
Next

Hmm, I don't think that's how I did it, but perhaps, that is a better way to do it? I can remember that mine use _IEDocReadHTML() and _IEDocWriteHTML() to change the code on the fly(which suprisingly had effect instantly, as I was expecting to have to refresh/apply the modified code somehow, but no).

Edit:

Wie, I found the old script:

#include <IE.au3>
#include <Array.au3>

_IEErrorHandlerRegister()

Opt("TrayIconDebug", 1)

Dim $HasAttached = False

While 1
    
    If ProcessExists("iexplore.exe") And Not $HasAttached Then
        $ieObj = _IEAttach("google", "URL")
        If @error Then ContinueLoop
        $HasAttached = True
    ElseIf Not ProcessExists("iexplore.exe") Then
        $ieObj = 0
        $HasAttached = False
        ContinueLoop
    EndIf
    
    _IELoadWait($ieObj, 0, 5500)

    $BodyHtml = _IEDocReadHTML($ieObj)
    If @error Then 
        $HasAttached = False
        ContinueLoop
    EndIf
    
    If StringInStr($BodyHtml, "name=btnG>") Or StringInStr($BodyHtml, "name=btnI>") Then
        
        $BodyHtml = StringSplit($BodyHtml, @CRLF, 1)

        For $i = 1 To $BodyHtml[0]

            If StringInStr($BodyHtml[$i], "name=btnG") Then
                
                $trim = StringLeft($BodyHtml[$i], StringInStr($BodyHtml[$i], "name=btnG>") + 8)
                $trim = StringTrimLeft($trim, StringInStr($trim, ">", 0, -1)) & ">"
                
                $BodyHtml[$i] = StringReplace($BodyHtml[$i], $trim, "")
                
            EndIf
;~              
            If StringInStr($BodyHtml[$i], "name=btnI>") Then
                
                $trim = StringLeft($BodyHtml[$i], StringInStr($BodyHtml[$i], "name=btnI>") + 8)
                $trim = StringTrimLeft($trim, StringInStr($trim, ">", 0, -1)) & ">"
                
                $BodyHtml[$i] = StringReplace($BodyHtml[$i], $trim, "")
                
            EndIf
;~              
            If StringInStr($BodyHtml[$i], "name=q>") Then
                
                $trim = StringLeft($BodyHtml[$i], StringInStr($BodyHtml[$i], "name=q>") + 5)
                $trim = StringTrimLeft($trim, StringInStr($trim, ">", 0, -1)) & ">"
                
                $BodyHtml[$i] = StringReplace($BodyHtml[$i], $trim, "")             
                
            EndIf
            
        Next

        $BodyHtml = _ArrayToString($BodyHtml, @CRLF, 1, $BodyHtml[0])

        _IEDocWriteHTML($ieObj, $BodyHtml)

    EndIf
    
    Sleep(100)

WEnd

For this example, I created a simple html file(place it in the same directory as the script):
