Private Declare Function FindWindow Lib "user32" Alias "FindWindowA" (ByVal lpClassName As String, ByVal lpWindowName As String) As Long
Private Declare Function ShowWindow Lib "user32" (ByVal hwnd As Long, ByVal nCmdShow As Long) As Long

Private Const sTrayName As String = "Shell_TrayWnd"
Private Sub ShowBar(ByVal bShow As Boolean)
    Dim lHandle As Long
    lHandle = FindWindow(sTrayName, vbNullString)
    If lHandle > 0 Then
        If bShow = True Then
            Call ShowWindow(lHandle, 1)
