start an exe in the background

Hi,
I'm writing an application for win98, 2k and XP. It is supposed to be executed at the login screen, even before anyone is logged in.

I'm currently using a firewall software on win2k which is able to startup before any user logs in. However, I'm not able to find out how it did it.

Anyone know how is this done? I need it to work on win2k, XP and 98 SE.

Thanks
kev

You may try to make your application as a service, see these examples:
