The following code works for me, it is the click event of a button handler, when the button is clicked the browser is loaded.

private void Button1_Click(Object sender, EventArgs e)
{
Process.Start("http://www.experts-exchange.com/Microsoft/Development/.NET/.NET_Framework_2.0/Q__22966731.html");
}

Process.Start can cause an exception, use a try/catch block

    string url= "http://www.google.com";
    try
        {
         System.Diagnostics.Process.Start(url);
        }
   catch
        {
             // do something
        }
