I think you want to run it as an NT Service. Why don't you try JavaService and tell us how it works out . Or you could try Bill Giel's JavaServ code. A google search for Java+NT Service will get you lot's more references.

Cindy, I don't have the answer to Shawn's question, but I don't exactly see how your answer is related to the question. Running a service in Windows NT (/2000/XP) is a far different thing than showing a small icon next to the time in your address bar. As a matter of fact, I think there are almost no services which are shown as an icon, but if you install a program, say, for example: winamp, it will display a icon... Just my 2 cents. Eurocents, in my case Greetings, Erik

Ya that is what i am looking for. I want to be able to just have an icon in the task bar that shows that the program is running. Not run a service. Thanks for the help tho. If anybody else out there can manage to find out how to do this could they be so kind and try to help me out. Thanks in advance Shawn
