How to terminate a Task (not a Process)

P: n/a
I want to open a new Windows Explorer window, and some time later
close it.
I can start the Explorer session with Shell, which according to help
returns a unique Task code.
This starts a new Explorer session which is visible in the
Applications window when you ctl-alt-del.
How can I close just this task?
I know how to close the Process, but it seems there is only ever one
process for Explorer, and I don't particularly want to close it.

Check out http://www.mvps.org/access/api/api0025.htm. There's a link to
another API you'll need to get the class name.
