Starting IE from VB App

Is there a way to start IE from within a VB app?

My VB app needs to open IE with a URL specified by the VB app.  

As a bonus, the VB app needs to post an HTML form into the URL.  The target web page would read the HTML form as if it was posted from another web page.

Any help will be appreciated.

iboutchkine,

OK, I will try those.

What about posting a form into the desired URL?
