I replaced            Ie.LocationURL == "http://www.google.com"  - By StartsWith

You need include reference to c:\Windows\System32\shdocvw.dll
And                                          using SHDocVw;
public void CheckWindow()
    ShellWindows windows = new ShellWindows();
    foreach (SHDocVw.InternetExplorer Ie in windows)
        if (Ie.LocationURL.StartsWith ( "http://www.google.com"))
            MessageBox.Show("IE Found");
