You will most likely need to add the path to your application to the registry key

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run

You can make your form maximized and give it a border style of "None" so that it fills the screen. Then you would need to filter certain key presses to keep users from exiting (e.g. Alt-F4, Ctrl-Alt-Del-->which may be a bit trickier).
