    Hello there, I was just wondering if there was a group policy feature and/or free software available to totally disable use of the mouse or move it to the corner of the screen at startup. You see, my teammates and I are creating a digital kiosk as part of a school project which uses a web page as the layout. The center of the page houses the daily announcements, which scroll using Javascript. However, if the mouse hovers over the announcements, the Javascript picks up on this and stops scrolling. My goal is to prevent the pointer from being visible.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks very much.
