If I understand your question right you want to open the explorer with these folders?

Search in the registry for their clsid and pass this clsid to the explorer.exe with two colons in front of it.

On my machine it is:
Network Neighbourhood
explorer.exe ::{208D2C60-3AEA-1069-A2D7-08002B30309D}

Recycle bin
explorer.exe ::{645FF040-5081-101B-9F08-00AA002F954E}

Internet
explorer.exe ::{FBF23B42-E3F0-101B-8488-00AA003E56F8}
