Add a ref in your project to the "COM+ 1.x Admin Type Library", then you can use the COMAdminCatalog object to do this.
Dim oCatalog As COMAdmin.COMAdminCatalog
Set oCatalog = CreateObject("COMAdmin.COMAdminCatalog")
oCatalog.ShutdownApplication "PackageName" ' to shut it down
oCatalog.StartApplication "PackageName" ' to start it
If you want to do it for all applications, you can use one of the collections:
Dim oPackages As Object
Set oPackages = oCatalog.GetCollection("Applications") 

Dim oPackage As COMAdmin.COMAdminCatalogObject
For Each oPackage In oPackages
  oCatalog.ShutdownApplication oPackage.Value("Name")
