Not too sure but you may need DoFileDownload API? like:

Private Declare Function DoFileDownload Lib "shdocvw.dll" (ByVal lpszFile As String) As Long
Private Sub Form_Load()
    'KPD-Team 2000
    'URL: http://www.allapi.net/
    'E-Mail: KPDTeam@Allapi.net
   DoFileDownload StrConv("http://www.allapi.net/", vbUnicode)
End Sub
