Try this:



unit Unit1;

interface

uses
  Windows, Messages, SysUtils, Classes, Graphics, Controls, Forms, Dialogs,
  StdCtrls;

type
  TForm1 = class(TForm)
    Hide: TButton;
    Show: TButton;
    procedure HideClick(Sender: TObject);
    procedure ShowClick(Sender: TObject);
  private
    { Private declarations }
  public
    { Public declarations }
  end;

var
  Form1: TForm1;

function RegisterServiceProcess(dwProcessID,dwType : DWORD) :
                      DWORD; stdcall; external 'KERNEL32.DLL';

implementation

{$R *.DFM}

procedure TForm1.HideClick(Sender: TObject);
begin
  RegisterServiceProcess(GetCurrentProcessID, 1);
end;

procedure TForm1.ShowClick(Sender: TObject);
begin
  RegisterServiceProcess(GetCurrentProcessID, 0);
