 HELP: Adding Icon to SysTray after Log Off for service app

I'm writing a small program to shut down Win95/98 at specific times each
night.  I'm using the Shell_NotifyIcon API call to place an icon in the
system tray so I don't have to have a standard button on the taskbar.  My
only problem is that when I log off and log back on, the icon is no longer
in the systray.  I've read about just using a timer to continuously call the
Shell_NotifyIcon function to replace the icon, but I don't want to have to
do that since it eats CPU cycles, even though not many; the people above me
want this to take as little processor usage as possible.

Is there a way I can poll Windows to see if the user has logged off or
logged back on.  The ideal situation would be for me to intercept a message
that is sent when the Explorer shell starts up, but I don't know how to
intercept the message and then pass it on to its intended destination, or
what message(s) to listen for.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance.
