What you need is a Windows Service. This is how stuff like and antivirus starts with the computer and runs in the background.

The main disadvantage of a service is that it cannot display a user interface. If you need the service to display information or want the user to configure or interact with the service, you need a separate application.

Also, a service cannot be debugged as easily as a standard application.
