hiding the taskbar

I asked this question before and the answer did not work so I will ask it again. I am using VB4-16bit in a win95 enviorment. I would like to hide the task bar when my program loads and then bring it back when the user exits.
With code please...
Including the API
Thanks

Public hwnd1 As Long

Public Declare Function SetWindowPos Lib "user32" (ByVal hwnd As Long, ByVal hWndInsertAfter As Long, ByVal x As Long, ByVal y As Long, ByVal cx As Long, ByVal cy As Long, ByVal wFlags As Long) As Long
Public Declare Function FindWindow Lib "user32" Alias "FindWindowA" (ByVal lpClassName As String, ByVal lpWindowName As String) As Long
       
Public Const SWP_HIDEWINDOW = &H80
Public Const SWP_SHOWWINDOW = &H40

'To hide the taskbar:
hwnd1 = FindWindow("Shell_traywnd", "")
Call SetWindowPos(hwnd1, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, SWP_HIDEWINDOW)

'To show the taskbar
Call SetWindowPos(hwnd1, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, SWP_SHOWWINDOW)

Well this guy send me some code that was supposed to hide a form but it hid the taskbar, if you want it I'll post it. I dunno how well it will work, I think it was VB3 code and I used it in VB5 32 bit.
