    You need the NTSVC.OCX, a free ActiveX distribuited by Microsoft. This OCX
    handle event´s from Service Manager and it allows you to create an VB
    application as if it was a service of Windows NT or 2000.

    Documentation for this OCX is found in internet.

    I think the guy wants to make the program run off the system tray. Isn't
    that something different to a service, or am i confusing myself?
