I guess

 (w32-shell-execute "open" "iexplore" url)

isn't what you want, right?

When you say "if IE is already running", is that because you wan to
reuse the IE-window? The reason I ask is that there is a setting in IE
that tells it whether to open in a new window or try to reuse existing
ones (I have turned that feature off because I find it very annoying
that some URLs "take over" my open pages).
