This actually seems to work well under windows 8. Kind of I ran this test code from MSDN:

    Private Sub Form1_Load(sender As Object, e As EventArgs) Handles MyBase.Load
        Dim objShell
        Dim objShellWindows

        objShell = CreateObject("shell.application")
        objShellWindows = objShell.Windows

        If (Not objShellWindows Is Nothing) Then
            Debug.Print(objShellWindows.Count)
        End If

        objShellWindows = Nothing
        objShell = Nothing
    End Sub


It printed 4. I expected 5.
