    Reading the FAQ may help you. In particular, this entry on running programs may help with your first problem.
    The word rap as it applies to music is the result of a peculiar phonological rule which has stripped the word of its initial voiceless velar stop.

    1) SetWindowPos using HWND_TOPMOST.
    2) SetCursorPos

    Look up the details on MSDN or in your helpfiles.
