There is a previous question on this subject recently. Basically you can change it to the processes list but not remove it completely.

Hello krydea,
  You could make your form's border style as bsToolWindow.
  This will hide your app from the Alt-Tab thnigy.

Shehansu's link (to my question!!) will allow for the application to remain
hidden from the program tab, however in XP or NT it will still show in the processes tab. However still check it out as i used a mixture of Geo's and Shehansu's answer.
