Use the shellexecute API
I don't know the exact phrase right now, cause I am not behind my VB-computer... sorry for that, but
try something like below

in module

Public Function ShellExecute .... (You can find this using the API-viewer)

Sub label1_click()

Shellexecute ... "open", label1.caption , ....

End sub

It works for "mailto" action, but it doesn't work for "http", what could be the reason.
