first make a var:
var hTaskBar: HWND;
---------------------
Enter this in the form's OnCreate Event Handler:
hTaskBar := FindWindow('Shell_TrayWnd', nil);//Finds the taskbar
---------------------
to show the task bar:
ShowWindow(hTaskBar, SW_SHOW);
---------------------
to hide the task bar:
ShowWindow(hTaskBar, SW_HIDE);

Well, Saar(Daniel), I can see that you only get, get, get and never give, that's bad thing to do...and one more thing...Are you trying to make any screen freezes, and stuff like that, like trying to mess up with poeple's computers, and making kinda viruses...hmhmhmhmh....BAD>>>>>>> Better change that.......................    :-[
