Is there anyway I can use VB to write an application that would find what tasks are running in the system tray and then hide only selected ones?

Thanks in advance

This is an API call, go to http://floach.pimpin.net and find TraySaver, it comes with source code and should show you how to do this.

This question was awarded, but never cleared due to the JSP-500 errors of that time.  They were "stuck" against userID -1 versus the intended expert whom you awarded.  I needed to manually fix a number of these for you today.  All your points will be verified at the end of this manual process, and the experts whom you awarded will finally get these points.  Inasmuch as grades in history never were reflected, I will assume that they were "A" grades, since anything less than that recommends Asker's input as to why, and none evident here.  The HELP DESK link has more about this and the QA/Grading process as well as Guidelines and Member Agreement.  This correction process is manual and will take about an hour.  I'll update all questions with this comment so you are advised.  Your profile will now correctly reflect the items that you closed rather than the out of balance that was reflected on questions graded and closed prior to these corrections.

Thanks,
