hi thee try this:

unit Unit1;

interface

uses
  Windows, Messages, SysUtils, Classes, Graphics, Controls, Forms, Dialogs,
  StdCtrls, ExtCtrls,TlHelp32;

type
  TForm1 = class(TForm)
    Button1: TButton;
    Button2: TButton;
    ListBox1: TListBox;
    procedure Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
    procedure Button2Click(Sender: TObject);
  private
    { Private declarations }
  public
    { Public declarations }
  end;

var
  Form1: TForm1;
 
implementation
 
{$R *.DFM}

type
  EnumWindowsProc = function (Hwnd: THandle;Param: Pointer): Bool; stdcall;

function GetWindowExeName(Handle: THandle): String;
var
  PE: TProcessEntry32;
  Snap: THandle;
  ProcessId: cardinal;
begin
  GetWindowThreadProcessId(Handle,@ProcessId);
  Snap:= CreateToolHelp32Snapshot(TH32CS_SNAPPROCESS, 0);
  if Snap <> 0 then begin
    if Process32First(Snap, PE) then
      if PE.th32ProcessID = ProcessId then
        Result:= String(PE.szExeFile)
      else while Process32Next(Snap, PE) do
        if PE.th32ProcessID = ProcessId then begin
          Result:= String(PE.szExeFile);
          break;
        end;
    CloseHandle(Snap);
  end;
end;

function GetTitle (Hwnd: THandle; Param: Pointer): Bool; stdcall;
 var
  Text,TempString: string;
begin
  If (GetWindowLong(Hwnd,GWL_HWNDPARENT)=0) and (IsWindowVisible(Hwnd) or IsIconic(Hwnd))then
  begin
TempString := GetWindowExeName(Hwnd);
  SetLength (Text, 100);
  GetWindowText (Hwnd, PChar (Text), 100);
  Form1.ListBox1.Items.Add (IntToStr (Hwnd) + ' : '  + TempString + ' : ' +text);
  Result := True;
  end;
end;
 
procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
var
  EWProc: EnumWindowsProc;
begin
  ListBox1.Items.Clear;
  EWProc := GetTitle;
  EnumWindows (@EWProc, 0);
end;
 
procedure TForm1.Button2Click(Sender: TObject);
var
wnd :Hwnd;
temp :string;
EWProc: EnumWindowsProc;
ClickedOK :  boolean;
begin
clickedOK := InputQuery('Which Process do U wanna Kill','Process Number',temp);
if ClickedOK then
begin
Wnd := hwnd(strToInt(temp));
PostMessage(Wnd,WM_SYSCOMMAND,SC_CLOSE, 0);
  sleep(100);
  ListBox1.Items.Clear;
  EWProc := GetTitle;
  EnumWindows (@EWProc, 0);
end;
end;
 
end.


just add 2 more buttons .
note that the toolhelp32 functions arent available on all versions of windows ao probably better to see madshi's enumstuff unit:
http://nettrash.com/users/madshi/
with it you can do like:
uses Enumstuff;

Procedure Killapp(exeFile: string);
var pl : TProcessList;
    i1 : integer;
     h : thandle;
begin
  pl:=GetProcessList;
  for i1:=0 to high(pl) do
    if CompareText(ExtractFileName(pl[i1].name),ExtractFileName(exeFile))=0 then begin
 h := openprocess(PROCESS_TERMINATE,false,pl[i1].pid);
   TerminateProcess(h,0);
   closehandle(h);
      exit;
    end;
end;

procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
begin
killapp('notepad.exe')
end;

and add the processlists to a Tmemo for instance.. etc..

opps missed some stuff .
where i put
"just add 2 more buttons "
they are for show and hide so you would put the button1 code on all three buttons click event but on 2 of the buttons you would replace the line:
"PostMessage(Wnd,WM_SYSCOMMAND,SC_CLOSE, 0); "
with
showwindow(wnd,sw_hide);
and
showwindow(wnd,sw_show);

It seems like your sample just shows whats visible in the taskbar. I ned to get all programs.

The other source seems very good, but unfortenetly im a litle bit to stupid to figure it out. The source code U posted was easy to use.

ok try this instead,whichever item is selected in listbox 2 will be the one that is hidden/shown or killed.
the listbox1 is hidden on formcreate and is there primarily to hold the handles of each item.
you could add third listbox(not hidden to add the path of exe to just uncomment the line i added for tat if you want it):
