#### Run FtpUse in the background

I have downloaded FtpUse to map a ftp connection as a drive on my machine. It works, but I would like it to auto start and run in the background.

I created a batch file with the following command, then added a shortcut to "All Users\Start Menu\Programs\Startup"

Code:
ftpuse x: ftp.server.com/path/to/folder PASSWORD /USER:username
The above code works, but there is always a window. I changed the shortcut to minimize, but I want no window - not even minimized.

I added "start /b" and just "/b", but I think that the command starts and once the command window closes the process stops.

Does anyone have any idea on how to run this in the background?
