Spinning this question off of

I have a service, written in C#, that monitors a set of files. It uses Growl to notify the end-user if the modified time of one of these files is over 4 hours old. I've seen situations where Growl.exe was not running under the current user's session, thus they did not receive updates. How can I ensure that Growl is always running under any interactively logged on users' sessions on the machines that this service runs on?
