Win 95/98 does not have services in the NT sense.  It's version of services
are simply programs that are run independently of user session and are
located in
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunServices

special switches in the command line, long after Win95 is started up.  Can
you even run things as services in Win95?  Still, no tray icon.
