Services are designed to do exactly that job. If you can turn your program to run as a service then that will fulfill your whole requirements.

In short, services are just normal programs with a special interface to the OS. They can be started at system start before the user logins and keep running indefinitely irrespective of any login/logoff. Services are completely background processes, without any kind of user interface at all.

If you have the chance of modifying the program, then making it into a service should be relatively easy. For C#, look at the ServiceBase class, make a subclass of it then call your original code from it.

If you can't change the program at all you may use a wrapper program and have it run yours. A good option is NSSM.

In any case, once your program is installed as a service you can manage it like any standard Windows service using control panel.
