The correct term is a service. I requires a registry key entry under
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\
MyService\
In the NT resource kit their is a utility SRVANY.EXE that can be used
to help setup any application as a service.

Do not mix background processes (applications with no windows running in "background" /I wish I knew what that background means/ ) , hidden applications (with app window hidden) and windows NT service applications (which are a whole different story).

First one is an ordinary windows application that does not allocate any windows. Since all processes in windows run simultaneously - once it started it will keep working without providing any visual feedback - a kind of background. That is onlya bit different from apps that do allocate windows but keep ?em hidden, like explorer.exe that you can see in processes list. (that's not exactly correct tho, since the taskbar window is owned by explorer, so it is not entirely invisible,, which makes explorer a bad example.) any way , to achieve that effect simply hide app's main window using ShowWindow or whatever other function that 'll do the job.
the last - service applications (or application service, as opposite to device services) -is the closest match
