What is the best way to have one C# application show and focus to another C# application hidden in the taskbar with a notifyIcon?  I would like to do this on startup, if the application is already running then focus to the first instance instead of loading the application again, also the first application was hidden using the controls Hide() method.  OS is Windows XP.
