Explain the program below, then. Run it a time or two and look in Task
Manger and you'll see "cmd.exe" (or equivalent) running but you won't
see any command windows.

#include <Windows.h>

int WINAPI WinMain(HINSTANCE hInstance, HINSTANCE hPrevInstance, LPTSTR
lpCmdLine, int nCmdShow)
        STARTUPINFO si;
        memset(&si, 0, sizeof(si));
        si.cb = sizeof(si);
        si.dwFlags = STARTF_USESHOWWINDOW;
        si.wShowWindow = SW_HIDE;
        char szBuffer[MAX_PATH + 1];
        GetEnvironmentVariable("COMSPEC", szBuffer, MAX_PATH);
        CreateProcess(szBuffer, NULL, NULL, NULL, FALSE, NULL, NULL, NULL, &si,
        return 0;
