Captute BN_CLICKED event and then execute the link with CreateProcess, it will open you default browser:
PROCESS_INFORMATION pi;
CreateProcess("http:\\myhost.com", 0, 0, 0, FALSE, CREATE_NEW_CONSOLE, 0, 0, 0, &pi);

If you want to change the cursor on mouse over, then you need to capture the mouse enter and exit. Please read the follow thread, it treats exactly this issue:

Another (similar) option...
In your OnClickXxxxx handler, use ShellExecute, like so:

     ShellExecute(NULL, "open", "http://www.yahoo.com",NULL, NULL,SW_SHOWNORMAL);
