    You should post what you tried.

    Otherwise, it looks like you just dumped your requirements on the forum and are expecting someone to just hand over the code.
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.
    I support http://www.ukip.org/ as the first necessary step to a free Europe.

    They're called Desk Bands - here's MSDN's starter page and sample code (Creating Custom Explorer Bars, Tool Bands, and Desk Bands).
