Which version of windows are you using?

In windows 2000 or XP:
Go to start/run
Type services.msc and hit [enter]
Double-click the  service you need to start at startup
In 'startup type' , select 'automatic'

If the service does not depend on any other, disabled (or non-existent) services, that's it.
Everytime you restart windows, it will run.

Cheers.

autoexec.bat

net send machinename "message to display"

or
Call path\filename.bat

or

Local security  policies / Security options / text for users at logon.  

The original post said you wanted to start a service in hidden mode at boot.  this can be done however I question the hidden mode motive.  A service started at boot will apear in the services list unless you are trying to create a virus this should not be a problem.
