Cool! I'm glad that it's working well.

There's a specific program called 'pythonw.exe' that's designed to execute
python programs without bringing up the dos window. I'm not sure how you
froze the programs, but see if there's a way for it to work with
pythonw.exe instead of python.exe.
As a first guess, try to rename your python scripts from '.py' files to
'.pyw' files, and apply Simple.py on that. Perhaps that will
automatically bundle pythonw.exe into your program.
