Tried it in VB.NET Winforms app, but no luck. It's still shown in the alt-tab menu:
Protected Overrides ReadOnly Property CreateParams As System.Windows.Forms.CreateParams
           Dim cp As CreateParams = MyBase.CreateParams
           cp.ExStyle = cp.ExStyle Or &H80
           Return cp
       End Get
   End Property
An easier way to do this is:
Me.FormBorderStyle = FormBorderStyle.SizableToolWindow
Me.ShowInTaskbar = False
Just like it mentions in this article, The original author's... since the tip doesn't work, I hate to say "it looks like you've just copied & pasted" D'Oh! | :doh:
