Any free programs that let you hide an application?

I was dallying with running a Halo PC dedicated server on a work machine with a lot of unused bandwith. I tried to find a program that would allow me to hide the running DOS window, so that it wouldn't show up in the tray, taskbar, etc. I found a program called Magic Window Hider that was so stuffed with trojans that it took about three hours to get them cleaned off.

I'm hoping someone has used one and knows of a good trustworthy application.

System is running Windows ME.

The only thing I could find was this.

It seems at least mostly legit though.

This is an issue in the scripting world as well, here's a page that goes over how to hide those, maybe you could write a script to call the exe and hide the terminal window that way.

I know there are other sites/ways to do this if none of these work I'll hunt some more.

You missed a major trojan.
