If you are running the VB.NET application on the server, then you can use the Shell command to start and stop the service.  For example:

Dim intProcID As Integer
intProcID = Shell("net start mssqlserver", AppWinStyle.NormalFocus)

If you want to make sure that the command is completed before continuing in your code:
intProcID = Shell("net start mssqlserver", AppWinStyle.NormalFocus, True)

You can use the Interop of SQLDMO to manage and control the servers:

All three answers, frodoman's, deepaknet's, and mine, are effective solutions to the problem (frodoman's and mine are substantially the same, though he beat me to the punch by a few minutes).
