Using the following API declaration is the start of putting the icon in the systray.  Post your email address and I will send you a document and a VB example that will show you how to make full use of the systray.  It is all to long to post here.

Declare Function Shell_NotifyIcon Lib "shell32.dll" (ByVal dwMessage As Long, lpData As NOTIFYICONDATA) As Long
