The ISAPI filter is not responsible for starting Tomcat: it merely handles
redirecting requests from IIS to Tomcat. You can configure your machine to
start Tomcat automatically:

And you can even configure Tomcat to start in the same service as your web

Most of this documentation should be in the Tomcat standard download.
