TSR stands for "Terminate and Stay Resident".  It means that you run a program and is stays running in the background, usually displaying a Win95 icon in the System Tray (lower right corner of the screen).  If there is no icon, it usually will appear on the Win95 "Close Programs" list that you get with CTL-ALT-DEL.  You don't need to know how it works.  Just execute it by typing the name of the EXE file.

If you are running DOS or Win 3.x, you will see the TSR by typing MEM at the DOS prompt.  It will be one of the items listed as taking up memory.  

Sometimes TSRs cause problems since they interfere with other things that are trying to run.  If not notice weird behavior after running it, blame it on the TSR!

why don't you you just create a batch file in dos and run the batch file in windows to start access

edit a file and save it as access.bat

:start
 c:\.....\access.exe  <- I don't remember the exe

goto start

so whenever someone exit access it will be called again.... unless the do a ctrl c and kill the batch file

To create a TSR, you must work under DOS, because a TSR doesn't exist as such at Win level.

Of course, you must use programming languages wich support TSR techniques, as asm, Pascal, etc.. If you're working, i.e., with Fox or Clipper, don't even dream of it.

This Is the type of program I had proposed but it needs to be
invisable to the user, this will still apear in the start bar
and can be easily closed with the mouse.

All I realy need to know is how to hid it from the start bar.
(thats where TSRs come in I think)
