Using the form of an application, as XP background

I have a piece of software, that monitors the temperatures, and the fan speeds, of various components inside my case, and it has an application window (the only 'form' of the application) that has graphics, to display the data. Its this window, which I would like to somehow, appear below my icons on the desktop, and become the background 'image' for my monitor.

I would rather not have to program something, if there is some way of doing it, that already exists. But if someone can suggest tips on a way that I could program it, I welcome them.

I can't think of any way that you can set it as an active background, but you could drag a shortcut to the program into your start folder so that it starts when your PC boots up. All other programs opened will sit on top of that one, but it will still be there and running for you to view as and when required.

I've seen a little proggie that will display certain info on the taskbar or i think at the top of screen.

Anything that opens will be underneath it.

See if I can find it.
