vb.net and psexec

Attempting to launch an internet browser on a remote machine.  Im having issues concating the arguments line, can someone help?  If I don't specify a site to visit, the code works fine, but I want to pass a site to remotely launch.

IM having trouble on a similar script written in VB

Try
            Dim targetpc As String = "192.168.1.3"
            Dim internet As String = "http://cnn.com"
            Dim p As New Process()
            p.StartInfo.FileName = "C:\Users\king derek\Desktop\PSTools\psexec.exe"
            p.StartInfo.Arguments = "\\" & targetpc & " " & Chr(34) & "C:\Program Files (x86)\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe" & " " & "http://cnn.com"
            p.Start()
            p.StartInfo.CreateNoWindow = True
            p.WaitForExit()
        Catch ex As Exception
            MsgBox("Shit didnt work")
        End Try

You need to put quotes before and after the command path
p.StartInfo.Arguments = "\\" & targetpc & " " & Chr(34) & "C:\Program Files (x86)\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe" & Chr(34) & " " & "http://cnn.com"
