You'll probably just need to supply several different icons and then
use the NotifyIcon object to show the appropriate icon at the
appropriate time. For an animated icon, you could use a series of
icons to represent each frame of the animation and use a timer to
periodically change the icon which is showing.

If you don't need to animate the icon, then I wouldn't think you'd
need an extra thread. Just change the icon as needed. If you plane
to animate it, you might want to look into a thread so that it
animates independently of the rest of the program.
