defaulting protocols

this isnt necessarily a vb question...or a programming question...but how can i set a default protocol (? im not sure if thats the right word for it)... for example... IE uses http:// and AIM uses aim://...how could i make my own and make my program open when the protocol is entered in IE? (like the aim:// protocol opens AIM and runs the command...and mailto:// opens Outlook if Outlook is the default mail application)...

i will also need a way to set this from VB if anyone knows a way...if its just in a plain text (Input/Output) file then itll be easy, but its probably not...i would need a way to create a default "protocol" from vb... anything regaurding this AT ALL will be helpful...thank you

    thanks but...hmmm...this is probably a really [b]stupid[/b] question, but.... msdn???...i searched for "Asynchronous Pluggable Protocols Overview" on msdn.microsoft.com because this is the only msdn i know of...is that the right msdn?...if so it didnt give me any results and when i search for "protocol" on microsoft i get topics about ISP and TCPI...and i dont think these are the kind of protocols that im lookin for...

    and i do not at all understand this [b]mk:@MSITStore:e:/msdn/inet.chm::/workshop/networking/pluggable/overview/overview.htm[/b] stuff...what does that mean? im really lost...sorry
