I want to write a program that runs in the background of a Windows computer and monitors a table in SQL Server and if it finds that there are any records in the table, pops up an alert from the bottom right side of the Windows toolbar just like Outlook does when there's new email.  How can I do this, preferably in vb.net using Visual Studio?
