Hiding a Window

So I recently set up a VirtualBox VM on my Windows 7 machine so I could access my XFS hard disk through a network share.

Being there's no way to hide a VirualBox VM by default (even by running in headless mode), I went ahead & wrote a quick C# program to hide running windows.

First of all, I created a .bat file to run my VM headless...the contents are as follows:

 cd "C:\Program Files\Sun\VirtualBox"
VBoxHeadless.exe -s Ubuntu             

Simple enough?

Here's my error-prone, crappy window hiding app:

MD5: B53BF803244C53C92E9447597BF6AA9F

If it crashes your system, doesn't work, etc.......too bad! :)
