 Finding programs running on task bar

Can anyone tell me how to find a list of all running programs (VB or
otherwise) that are on the Task Bar but NOT in the system tray and NOT
being run as background processes?.

I want to fill a Combo box with the titles of each program, so I have a
routine that uses the FindWindow API (using findfirst/findnext
parameters etc) and from the resulting hWnd's I can get the titles but
this returns every thread there is. I only want the programs on the Task
bar whether they are Minimised, maximised or normal.

Any ideas ?

Many thanks
