A Windows service doesn't have a UI, so using controls makes no sense. I think you need to have a think about what you actually need from this application and whether a Windows service is appropriate.

Firstly, Timer and NotifyIcon are not controls. Using a Windows.Forms.Timer in a Windows Service doesn't make sense because it's not a Windows Forms app, but you can use a Timers.Timer.

Secondly, how would you use a ListBox in an application that has no UI? Do you know what a Windows Service actually is and does? If so then please explain how you envision using a ListBox?
