 Windows XP replacment Shell In VB.NET quesiton

I am writing a replacement shell for windows XP and have
run into a problem.  

My shell has a status bar similar to what MS has.  Every
application that is lauched creates a button which can be
use to minimize/maximize the application.

My problem is that my status bar gets covered up by
running applications when they are put in "full Scree".  
What I would like to do is force any applicaiton that I
launch to regard the top of my status bar as the "end of
the screen" so the application will not cover my status
bar when full screen.  Is this possible to do in VB.NET?
