Hide/Show Start Menu

Hi everybody!

I desperately need some help...

I'm trying to temporarily hide the Start Menu. I have it partially working but the User Picture is really stubborn. The following lines hide and then re-enable the Start Menu:

Opt('WINTITLEMATCHMODE', 4)
ControlDisable('classname=DV2ControlHost', '', '')
WinSetTrans('classname=DV2ControlHost', '', 0)
WinSetTrans('classname=Desktop User Picture', '', 0)
ControlDisable("[CLASS:Button]", "", "")
ControlHide("[CLASS:Button]", "", "")

Sleep (5000)

ControlEnable('classname=DV2ControlHost', '', '')
WinSetTrans('classname=DV2ControlHost', '', 255)
WinSetTrans('classname=Desktop User Picture', '', 255)
ControlEnable("[CLASS:Button]", "", "")
ControlShow("[CLASS:Button]", "", "")
Opt('WINTITLEMATCHMODE', 2)

Exit

However, the user picture does not come back after re-setting the transparency to 255. So I tried minimizing the user picture:

WinSetState ('classname=Desktop User Picture', '', @SW_MINIMIZE)

but strangely only half of the User Picture gets minimized. Hidding it doesn't seem to work either:

[code]WinSetState ('classname=Desktop User Picture', '', @SW_HIDE)

I'm trying this on Windows 7 Ultimate, 64 bit.

Any help would be so greatly appreciated,

Ian
