    Read about System.Diagnostics.Process.Start, and don't create a window and you won't see the application (if you do a console app you will always get the black window, so do a windows app).

    Yay for malicious script kiddies!

    Give us a good, legitimate reason why you need to hide your program "from taskbar n [sic] other places"

    Post some code so we can help at least with the timer part

    edit: I would also believe that you cannot simply do that. Except by installing some driver-like software or changing some core functions or in general changing the way the OS registers the processes.
