Windows Startup with Winamp in Tray? (not Agent)

Apparently Winamp Agent does not play music - useless...

So I want winamp to be open at all times - i've got it to sit in my system tray and for it to start on startup
HOwever, I don't want the window to be open when Windows starts;

I basically want it to be in my tray icon all the time so I can use my hotkeys to play the music when I want to with no distractions -> any suggestions?

Maybe create a Winamp shortcut in your Autostart folder.

as long as winamp is minimised before closing then it should remember the previous state - there is a slight quirk where some of the windows can be seen when using a modern style skin but this isn't an issue with classic (2.x) style skins.
