How to Keep a Critical Program Running 24/7 in 3 Easy Steps

I want to monitor a running program on an XP box to make sure it stays running. If the program should quit for whatever reason, I'd like a way to attempt to restart the program after xx - minutes/seconds, for xx - attempts.
Specifically, I want a Citrix/terminal application session to restart when I reboot the Citrix server without having to do it manually. This would preclude setting up an application to run as a service I presume.
The Citrix server needs bounced a couple times per week and the particular remote application session will be running a time and attendance program...so it needs to always be available.
This would also fix any intermittent network failures so I don't get called at 5:30 AM saying people have no way to punch the clock.
My Google-fu is failing me on this one.
