How to Detect IBGuard?

How to make sure IbGuard is running on my Windows98 and XP?

When my app starts I want to be able to detect IBGuard running to ensure the database access can be done.
I tried this code, to detect IbGuard when its minimized on the tray:
     
var
 hwind:HWND;

hwind := 0;
hwind:=windows.FindWindow('#32770', 'IbGuard');
if (hwind=0) then
 MessageBox(0, 'Ibserver NOT Detected'
           ,'Atention!', mb_iconInformation)
else
 MessageBox(0, 'IbGuard Detected'
           ,'Atention!', mb_iconInformation);

This does not work.
But when I double click the IbGuard and the window comes up, I can detect it by using:

hwind := 0;
hwind:=windows.FindWindow('#32770', 'Propriedades de InteBase Guardian');
if (hwind=0) then
 MessageBox(0, 'Ibserver NOT Detected'
           ,'Atention!', mb_iconInformation)
else
 MessageBox(0, 'IbGuard Detected'
           ,'Atention!', mb_iconInformation);

Thanks!
Samples are welcome!
