Just put a label on the form with the appropriate colour and in the form include this code:

Private Declare Function ShellExecute Lib "shell32.dll" Alias "ShellExecuteA" (ByVal hwnd As Long, ByVal lpOperation As String, ByVal lpFile As String, ByVal lpParameters As String, ByVal lpDirectory As String, ByVal nShowCmd As Long) As Long
Const SW_SHOWNORMAL = 1

Private Sub Label1_Click()
    ShellExecute Me.hwnd, vbNullString, "http://www.experts-exchange.com", vbNullString, "C:\", SW_SHOWNORMAL
End Sub

For what it is worth VB.NET includes a Link control for just this purpose.
