How can I make a scheduled task invisible?

How can I hide a scheduled tasks from Scheduled Tasks window in Windows XP/Vista? I don’t want to hide Scheduled task icon from Control Panel. I want to hide a specific task BUT it should continue running but invisible to users.

    Also, check out Process Manager for Windows.

    Among other things the little app integrates functionality to easily hide running tasks from the taskbar. After the task is hidden it won't appear on Alt+Tab either.

    I believe the best you can do is hide the icon in the system tray. To do this, right click the task bar, go to Properties, and click Customize. From there you can set the icons you don't want visible to 'Always Hide'.
