How can I create Windows Services in Vb.net?  Instead of a windows form pops up all the time, I want it to start at a certain time during the day.

yes you can, set timer control and check with current time
like...

public partial class TestServise : ServiceBase
{
	private System.Threading.Timer TimerTest = null;
 
	public TestServise()
	{
		InitializeComponent();
		this.TimerTest = new System.Threading.Timer(Timer_Elapsed , null , System.Threading.Timeout.Infinite , System.Threading.Timeout.Infinite);
	}
 
	protected override void OnStart(string[] args)
	{
		try
		{
			// set timer intervale
			this.TimerTest.Change(5000 , 5000);
		}
		catch (Exception Ex)
		{
			this.Stop();
		}
		finally
		{
 
		}
	}
 
	private void Timer_Elapsed(object sender)
	{
		try
		{
			// check your time
			if (DateTime.Now.TimeOfDay = new TimeSpan(12 , 0 , 0))
			{
				// do your action
			}
		}
		catch (Exception Ex)
		{
		}
	}
 
 
}
