    try this,

    BOOL ShowWindow(
    HWND hWnd,
    int nCmdShow
    );

    SW_FORCEMINIMIZE - Windows NT 5.0 and later: Minimizes a window, even if the thread that owns the window is hung. This flag should only be used when minimizing windows from a different thread.
    SW_HIDE - Hides the window and activates another window.
    SW_SHOW - Activates the window and displays it in its current size and position.
    SW_SHOWNA - Displays the window in its current state. The active window remains active.
    SW_SHOWNORMAL - Activates and displays a window. If the window is minimized or maximized, the system restores it to its original size and position. An application should specify this flag when displaying the window for the first time.
