That's the exact reason why Explorer has been compromised for years. When it first appeared, people could launch notepad, fdisk and other dangerous applications so Microsoft had to shut most if not all of this off to save their OS from being labeled as insecure.

Let's look at Visual Basic?

To run inside the browser "Explorer" it has to be either a BHO (see the wikipedia) or an Active Object. You have to write the application using those methods.
