Just a idea:

What happens if you type something likw:

SHELL("http://www.name_of_website_here.com")

I reacon this might automaticaly open the site in the defult browser. But this is just a guese.

I'm going to go through advanced VB this next semester. I had a lot of fun with VB and was quite impressed with how good of a language it is. For once, Microsoft impressed me. :O

umm... I think he's probably either figured it out, or gave up after no one posting in this thread for 5 years.

I have other solution:

Works fine with me

How awesome would it be if the OP came back and was like "OMG THANK YOU! I've been working on this tirelessly for 5 long years!"
