C++:

1) The GetDesktopWindow function returns a handle to the desktop window.

2) The EnumWindows function enumerates all top-level windows on the screen.

3) For each top-level window call EnumChildWindows. This call should be recursive to get all childs (call the same function for each enumerated window).

..Then to close a window from which you have the handle, send the SC_CLOSE system message to it:
::SendMessage(hWnd, WM_SYSCOMMAND, SC_CLOSE, NULL);

Shove this in an infinite loop, and have a Sleep(20*1000); at the end of each loop.

if (pWnd)
{
MessageBox ("found");
pWnd->GetOwner()->PostMessage(WM_QUIT);
