    Yes. It's called Raw Mouse. Just look it up in google and you'll find some source code. It's only drawback is that it's only supported in XP and above.

    Oh.
    Well personaly, I would create a thread, and in it make a layered top-level window, then constantly set it's position.
    I'm guessing there are other better possible ways. But that's all I can think of; it shouldn't be to hard on the system.
