I've be able to remove my application from the task bar, without resorting to use WS_EX_TOOLWINDOW (which would make my window looks extremely crappy, without system menu, icon, and minimize/maximize).  (The application would provide UI through the system tray icon.)  But the problem is that it still left in the selection on Alt-Tab.  Is there anyway to remove it from Alt-Tab?
