IE control in form and popups / hotpots

A puzzle...

hmmm, we have firewall software on our laptops so that when the laptop
is in 'remote mode', i.e. out of the office, internet explorer is only
allowed to go to our company remote working site, and not browse the
internet at will... this is fine except when they are at a wireless
hotspot etc. where a the browser is redirected to a payment screen
(which is then blocked by the firewall).

My solution to this was to write an application (RW) containing a form
with the IE control embedded in it. This way, we can tell the firewall
to allow the RW application to go to any web site (since the IE control
instance is seen as RW.exe, not IE.exe), and hence redirected payment
screens work, and the user still cannot browse where they want because
there is no address bar (which is what we want).

This all works like a dream, BUT, we have now come across some hotspots
/ hotels where after the payment screen, a popup appears containing a
countdown timer. The popup is seen as IE.exe and not RW.exe and hence
is blocked. So the question is, how can I get round this? any thoughts?
is there anyway of making the popup appear to be from RW.exe?

Any thoughts and ideas very much appreciated.
