Download Quiet.zip, a freeware application from www.joeware.net.

When you use quiet.exe to launch an application, it is hidden from the taskbar. The application will appear as a process in Task Manager.

Example:

quiet notepad.exe

Quiet V01.00.00cpp Joe Richards (joe@joeware.net) October 2001

Process spawned...

NOTE: Logging off will kill the process, as it isn't hidden from the system.

NOTE: If quiet can't find the application to launch, a dialog box appears.
