The following procedure hides or shows the start button:

Procedure hideStartbutton (visi: boolean);
  Child : HWnd;
  c     : Array [0..127] Of Char;
  s     : String;
Begin { hideStartButton } 
  Tray := FindWindow ('Shell_TrayWnd', Nil); 
  Child := GetWindow (Tray, GW_CHILD); 
  While Child <> 0 Do 
    If GetClassName (Child, c, SizeOf (c)) > 0 Then 
      s := StrPas (c); 
      If UpperCase (s) = 'BUTTON' Then 
        // IsWindowVisible(Child) 
        startbutton_handle := Child; 
        If visi Then 
          ShowWindow (Child, 1) 
          ShowWindow (Child, 0) 
    Child := GetWindow (Child, GW_HWNDNEXT) 
End; { hideStartButton }
