Setting Focus On A VB App

I have a VB app that goes thru and make certain checks.  This can sometimes take about 3-4 minutes.  When the checks are completed, a Message Box pops up giving the results of the check.

What I need is, if while the checking process is going on, someone, lets say opens Microsoft Word to do some work in it.  

When the checking process is complete, I need to the VB app to become Visible again and setfocus on it.
I need for it to take over the screen again right before the Message Box pops up.

The name of my app is Search.exe

Thanks

Hello Guys.  Thanks for the reply.  Sorry I am just now getting back to you, but I did not receive and still have not received any emails saying anyone replied and I left early Friday.  I guess I should have checked anyway like I did today.

I will check these out and see how they work.

Thanks
