Default Windows Notifications from Icon in System Tray


What I want to do is create a way for the user to get notifications whenever certain tasks are due. I want a little icon in the system tray, which will display a notification (such as through the NotifyIcon) about something that needs completed. I'm familiar with notifyicon, and how to display notification, and create a context menu for it, but do I use a windows service to accomplish this, and how?

Or do I create a separate windows app that launches the main app when tasks are due? What would be a good approach to doing this?
