Detect browser Urls and close them if appropriate

Hi,

This is probably a tough one, that's why I'm offering 300 points for it.

Here's the deal.  I have a list of urls which may not be opened.  I have to check if a browser with any of the urls on the list is running, if it is, then shut it down.

This has to work with IE, Netscape and preferably Opera.

I know this is possible somehow, I've seen components that can retrieve the URLs of all open browsers, but they are never for free.

Regards,
Hagur

uses DDEMan;

procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
var
  DDE:TDDEClientConv;
begin
  DDE:=TDDEClientConv.Create(self);
  if DDE.SetLink('IExplore','WWW_GetWindowInfo') then
  Memo1.Lines.Add(DDE.RequestData('0xFFFFFFFF,sURL,sTitle'));
  DDE.Free;

Thanks for your comments guys,  I knew about the DDE method to retrieve the url from IE.  But what about
Netscape or Opera?

Can anyone please show me how I could do this?
