Here are a sub and function that work together to find a webpage whose URL begins with http://www.google.com  If one is found, the URL is displayed in a MsgBox.
Sub TestURLmatch()
Dim ie As Object
Dim sMatch As String
sMatch = "http://www.google.com"
On Error Resume Next
Set ie = GetIEatURL(sMatch & "*")
On Error GoTo 0
If Not ie Is Nothing Then
    MsgBox "Found webpage at " & ie.LocationURL
End If
End Sub

Function GetIEatURL(sMatch As String) As Object
Dim ie As Object, oShApp As Object, oWin As Object
Set oShApp = CreateObject("Shell.Application")
For Each oWin In oShApp.Windows
    If TypeName(oWin.Document) = "HTMLDocument" Then
        Set ie = oWin
        If LCase(ie.LocationURL) Like LCase(sMatch) Then
            Set GetIEatURL = ie
            Exit For
        End If
    End If
Next
Set oShApp = Nothing
Set oWin = Nothing

End Function
