I have a small program which is just an .exe 
All it does is make a cosmetic change on my computer but in needs to remain running for that change to stay in effect.
When it is running however it has both a window and an icon on the taskbar.

I would like some advice on how to make the program run invisibly so that i can set it to start with my computer and have it run in the background.

My computer is running Windows 7.
So far I tried to make it into a service as I was told such for do what I wanted but I failed at that endeavor. I have created a service which runs at start up but it seems to do nothing. It does say 'stopped' in the task manager however.
A way to fix that or another way of putting the program out of sight would be truly wonderful.
Thank you all for your time!!
