Creating an Active Desktop Window

Does anyone know how I can create  an Active Desktop window from within
a Python script? It would also be good to know how to refresh that
window and nothing else.

At present I have an application which writes to a file which is read
by the Active Desktop (embeded IE), then a refresh command is issued
which refreshes the whole screen. This is a bit clumsy and also the
user needs to manually set up the Active Desktop component.

I have been looking around for some solutions to this and as of today
my book on PyWin32 has still not arrived.

Thanks in advance for any pointers.
