I know there exists a little executable that can be used to run a script as a service
That executable is indeed a service and will simply invoke the script
I don't remember where to find it

It is srvany.exe - http://support.microsoft.com/kb/137890

a how-to here: http://www.tacktech.com/display.cfm?ttid=197

Or you could just run the batch file using a scheduled task, from the "run" key in the registry to start when the computer starts?

I prefer this one over SrvAny; it has more options and a 64bit version as well:
NSSM - the Non-Sucking Service Manager
