    c++ file at startup

    i have a c++ program(all it does is ping ip addresses every 5 minutes). I would like to have it start up with windows and run in the background, meaning you don't see it on the desktop, taskbar, system tray, or anything that the typical user could see it running and continue to run til the machine is shut down. If it can be seen in Task Manager, that is ok, just would like some feedback on how to proceed with this. I assume it is possible, would just like some advice. thanks.
