Terminate-and-stay-resident

Hello,
How would one go about to make a application a tsr? I am working on a small app that monitors activity on a pc and it would be ideal to have the program hidden.  Any help would be fantastic.
Thank you in advance,

You can hide an application by simply creating it without a form or hiding a form (Form1.Visible = False).

A better idea (and more in line with Windows standards) is to put an icon in the Tray (where the clock is). To do this, you can use an OCX such as SysTray32.ocx available at:

As for clifABB's suggestion about the ocx, there is no need for an ocx. Goto the address below and use the code given.

Too much code to maintain.  Especially when the OCX is free.
