It should hide it
procedure TForm1.FormCreate(Sender: TObject);
var
  h: HWND;
begin
  h := Application.Handle;
  SetWindowLong(h, GWL_EXSTYLE,GetWindowLong(h, GWL_EXSTYLE) or            WS_EX_TOOLWINDOW);
end;

May be this helps something, but it is not fired when terminating from task manager.

In the main application Form
procedure TForm1.FormCloseQuery(Sender: TObject; var CanClose: Boolean);
begin
  CanClose := (Application.MessageBox(PChar('Terminate?'),PChar('Decide'),MB_YESNO) = IDYES);
end;

goto www.madshi.net and check out madshi's example on API hooking... it will show how to make it so that your process can't be terminated via TerminateProcess
