Linux supports multiple X servers, but I was wondering if there is any proprietary software that let you do something similar for Windows 7 (Pro). I am trying to run some app 24/7 on my family member's computer remotely without making it get into their way. More specifically, the app runs on Firefox, but I want the window to be hidden so that they do not touch it by an accident.

Is minimizing to the system tray enough? You could use Trayconizer to put any application in the system tray. It won't hide it completely, but it should make it a bit less visible. – Dracs May 27 '12 at 4:20
could this be relevant, see if anything here helps… – barlop May 27 '12 at 7:00
Both of them are great answers. I would have gone with Trayconizer since that is the simple solution. Thank you. – Forethinker May 28 '12 at 10:47
