    No. This would be too easy if a web application could start
    applications on the client.

    On top of that, are you sure your visitors are running Windows?

    This would start Explorer on the web server, not on the client.
    Obviously, this will not work.

    Nope.

  3. That's not feasible due to security restrictions on the client.
    The only way would probably be if you had an ActiveX control embedded in the
    page and your users accepted the associated security warning.
